Internet Safety

Pictor Academy

Create, Connect and Share Respect.

A better internet starts with you.

Dear Parents and Carers,

Today is Safer Internet day. The theme for 2018 is ‘Create, Connect and Share Respect. A better internet starts with you.’

Today we have been thinking about being safe on line, focussing on asking adults for help if there is anything on the computer they do not like. Below are a few useful websites with valuable parental advice about helping our children safe when accessing the internet at home. Please take the time to have a look at some of them there are many helpful tips about parental settings which will help to protect our children.

NSPCC: www.nspcc.org.uk

CEOP: www.ceop.gov.uk

Think U Know: www.thinkuknow.co.uk

Childnet: www.childnet.com

UK Safer Internet Centre: www.saferinternet.org.uk

There are many good books that help to share the message about being safe online, which can be shared with very young children. These are books that we have in school to read with some of our children when we learn about being safe online.
