"Computers themselves, and software yet to be developed, will revolutionise the way we learn." - Steve Jobs
E-Safety is an important part of keeping children safe at St Wilfrid’s Primary School. We strongly believe that working in partnership with parents and carers is key to ensuring our children's safety online.
E-Safety is taught throughout the year, 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 may feel daunting, but you don't need to be an expert on the internet. Understanding what children do online and the risks they face will help you keep your child safe 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.
Our local PCSO holds regular assemblies throughout the year, reminding children how to stay safe online and catering to the range in ages across the school.
We hold regular parent meetings around managing Online Safety at home, please contact school to enquire about the next date.
