Online Safety

STOP!

If you are looking at this page because you think a child is at immediate risk of harm from online activity please phone 999 or contact the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Command (a National Crime Agency), by clicking on the link here.

At Leiston Primary School, it is our aim to create an Online Safe community which involves pupils, parents and staff. Safeguarding is everyone's responsibility and through regular training, parent sessions, an Online Safety curriculum and clear policies for all groups, we are supporting our children to become responsible users of technology which is constantly evolving.

All our staff attend regular training in Online Safety which allows us to deliver training to our workforce, parents and carers.

Mrs Geater is our named Online safety lead; if you have any concerns or questions please feel free to contact her. 

Below you will find links to school policies; advice from The Department of Education and information about gaming restrictions to support you at home.

Internet Safety - Newsround Caught In The Web

This video talks about some of the things to be careful about when children use the internet. It's suitable for anyone from Year 3 and up.

Support for Younger Children

 

There are also some great books out there to support discussions about staying safe online at home. We have some copies in school, please contact the office if you would like to borrow a copy.

Hover over the image to see a description of the book.

Digiduck was produced by Childnet International to help Foundation Stage and KS1 children explore the idea of being a good online friend. Digiduck needs help to make a difficult decision about sharing photos online. Digiduck can be used to discuss issues such as online friendship, taking and sharing photos safely, online gaming and responsibility online.  This story is a 21st century version of the “Billy Goat’s Gruff” fairy story, a familiar tale for both adults and children and provides opportunities for discussion about keeping safe online. Troll Stinks can be used to discuss issues such as cyberbullying, being kind online and taking/sharing pictures.  The main message within Penguinpig is that sometimes people use the internet to lie or trick other people and strongly emphasises that children should always check content with a trusted adult.
