Keeping children safe online
Keeping children safe online during the coronavirus lockdown
Children are doing a lot of their home learning online which means they are more at risk from online abuse. Here are two links to help you keep your children safe:
E-Safety in school and at home
E-Safety is an important part of keeping children safe at The Duke of Bedford Primary School . We have extensive security measures in place in school to help safeguard pupils from potential dangers or unsuitable material. E-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.
