Online Safety

Online Safety is an important part of keeping children safe at Moorpark Junior School . We have extensive security measures in place in school, which are monitored to help safeguard pupils from potential dangers or unsuitable material. Any e-safety incidents are recorded and managed in accordance with our Online Safety Policy. Online Safety is taught to all pupils explaining and demonstrating how to stay safe and behave appropriately online.

We can only be successful in keeping children safe online if we work with parents to ensure the e-safety message is consistent. It is important that parents speak to their children about how they can keep safe and behave appropriately online.  

It’s essential to be realistic - banning the internet or technology will not work and it often makes a child less likely to report a problem. Education around safe use is essential.

 

During their time at home with you, we want to continue to support the children in making good decisions when it comes to their safety, particularly their online safety, as this is currently their main way of communicating with others outside your home and to continue with their learning.

In school, we teach your children to be SMART:

Keep SAFE – be careful not to give out personal information

Don’t MEET – don’t meet up with people who you have only met online

ACCEPTING – Accepting messages from people you don’t know or don’t trust can lead to problems.

RELIABLE – Is the information you are viewing true?

TELL – If you feel unsafe or are worried about what you see or hear, you must tell a trusted adult. 

Whilst the children are at home with you, we are providing them with work from trusted websites. If the children work from those websites, they will not come across anything which makes them feel worried or feel unsafe, however, whilst using other websites or when playing online games where they are communicating with others, they may need your support in dealing with anything that makes them feel worried or unsafe. Below are some useful websites that can help you to support your child at this time.
