The internet is an amazing resource, overflowing with knowledge, games and communities of people. At Chalkhill Primary School we make sure our pupils are aware of some of the risks to safety that are online and what to do to stay safe. We do so through a scheme of lessons along with assemblies and workshops with parents. We also encourage parents/carers to talk to their children about how to behave safety when online, to ensure pupils remain safe when browsing at home. The children and parents are required to sign E-safety agreement forms and ouracceptable user policy. A pdf version of it is at the end of this page.
We are committed to improving e-Safety not only in school but at home as well. If you would like to talk to a member of staff about any questions or concerns about internet use in school or at home, don't hesitate to get in touch.
We encourage parents to set up filtering on their home internet. To learn how to do this for the major providers of internet please click the text below.
We also suggest parents visit the website link below for up to date information on Facebook privacy settings, as whilst we know that no children under the age of 13 should be on Facebook, if they are then they should be educated as to how to ensure they are safe.
If you have to report any inappropriate content, contact or conduct they encounter online to CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre) by visiting this page and clicking our report button below.
