Safer Internet Day
Tuesday 7th February 2023
"Together for a better internet."
Online safety is very important and as a school we take it very seriously. Below are several links that, as parents and carers, you might find useful.
In additional, we send home a periodic magazine called 'Digital Parenting' which is produced by Parent Zone in conjunction with Vodaphone. This is full of up to date information and articles about on-line issues. If you would like a digital copy, click here to go to the website to download a copy.
Please click on the hyperlink to be taken to the children's e-safety page.
Good Mental health is important and Parent Zone have created a web app in order to try to help children vocalise their concerns, called Ollee.

'At Parent Zone, we already know that parents are doing a great job and that they want to do a great job – and we believe they should have the best possible resources to do that. And that’s why we’ve created Ollee.
Ollee is a virtual friend for children aged 8-11, available via a web app. It was created by Parent Zone and is funded by BBC Children in Need’s A Million & Me initiative, which aims to make a difference to children’s emotional wellbeing.'

Talk PANTS helps children understand that their body belongs to them, and they should tell someone they trust if anything makes them feel upset or worried.
This simple guide from the NSPCC, (for parents (click here), and this child-friendly one (PDF)), will help parents talk PANTS with their child.
