eSafety for Parents

"Pupils report that they feel safe, they know how and to whom to report any concerns. The school website has good advice for pupils about bullying and e-safety. There is also a digital worry box that means pupils can report their concerns even when not at school."

Parenting in the Digital Age

It is really important that parents and carers work with us to ensure children stay safe in their use of technology. When we talk about eSafety, we are not just talking about the internet. We are talking about the use of computers, games consoles (such as X-Box), mobile phones, televisions, tablets (such as the iPad) and many other things.

There are several elements to e-safety that we teach at Birchwood C of E:

  • How to use the internet safely, and what to do if something goes wrong or we see something we shouldn't
  • How to keep ourselves safe - keeping our details private and keeping our data secure
  • How to behave when using technology - being courteous and responsible, and what to do if others treat us in a way which is not kind. This strand also links with our behaviour and anti-bullying policies.
  • Encouraging a healthy use of technology - not over-using mobiles, consoles or computers.
