Online Safety for Parents

Pound Hill Junior School is committed to ensuring that children have a safe and secure learning environment when working online at school.

 

Staying safe online and when using technology is a large part of the Computing curriculum as well as an important life skill for children. The internet can be a fantastic resource to learn, play and communicate which is continually evolving.  However, there can be potential dangers and children need to be educated to understand how they can protect themselves online.

 

Online Safety is not just about the internet, it also includes technology such as game consoles, mobile phones, tablets and many other electronic devices. Children need to learn how to protect their personal information on a range of devices and how to report online.
