Online Safety

Online Safety at Marshfield Primary School

At Marshfield Primary School we are working with staff, pupils and parents/carers to create a school community which values the use of new technologies in enhancing learning, encourages responsible use of Computing, and follows agreed policies to minimise potential e-safety risks.

At School

At school we take several steps to ensure that children are kept safe while using the internet and electronic communication.

  • We use targeted filtering to prevent access to websites that are not suitable or may be dangerous.
  • Internet access in supervised and we monitor the websites that are accessed.
  • We use a controlled email system where we monitor the children’s emails and we limit the addresses that children can communicate with. These steps are taken protect the children from unsuitable emails and identify possible cyber bullying.
  • Children are also taught how to use the technology safely so that they can keep themselves safe.

 

Safer Internet Day 2018

 

Safer Internet Day 2018 was celebrated globally on Tuesday 6th February 2018 with the slogan “Create, Connect and Share Respect: A better internet starts with you”.
More than a thousand organisations across the UK got involved to help inspire a national conversation about using technology responsibly, respectfully, critically and creatively.

 

At Marshfield Primary School we held a whole school competition which asked each year group to solve an online safety question. Please see the below PowerPoint to see evidence of our fantastic work!

At Home

We appreciate parents can have a difficult job keeping up with their children on the fast changing technology available to them, let alone knowing the dangers they face. The issues of safety, privacy, online predators or grooming and cyberbullying are sometimes complex, both technically and psychologically and parents can struggle to keep up.

To help parents we have put together a selection of links to websites that will help them to ensure that their children can reap the benefits of the Internet while staying safe.

Useful links

 

Below are examples of website and resources which can support children at school and at home with online safety.

New Resource from ThinkUKnow

 

Play Like Share helps children to identify the signs of pressurising and threatening behaviour in an age appropriate way. This is explored through highly relatable characters and non-frightening peer-on-peer scenarios, where children recognise tactics such as flattery or bribery or that feeling you might get when something’s not right. The resources aims to develop children’s confidence and skills to respond to these situations and get help when they need it.

Here are some other useful links to use at home.
