Online Safety workshop
Please find below link to the 2022 video for our online safety workshop for parents.
The Internet provides both children and staff with instant access to a huge number of resources and up-to-date information from around the world. There is no other way that this amount of information could be made available to schools. It can be used to provide children with personalised learning and also work that appears more in keeping with the real world. Interactive ‘games’ can make practicing skills more interesting. However, there are risks associated with the Internet and other new technologies. These are linked to content, contact, conduct and commerce. The benefits far outweigh the risks as long as children, parents and staff are made aware of the risks and follow safe practices and behaviours.
It is vital our children know how to stay safe when using technology, know what the dangers are and that they know what to do if they are worried or need help.
