Online Safety at Home

The internet is amazing when used safely and correctly. It gives children the opportunity to play, create, learn and connect. However, children with special educational needs are more likely to experience the negative impact of the internet when accessing games, apps and social networking sites.

We want to encourage our pupils to enjoy the online world safely. Here are our top tips to online safety at home:

  • Develop family rules together about online use
  • Learn about new apps, games and social media:

Provides the latest information and advice on the social network apps and games that children are using.

The National Online Safety mobile app empowers parents to understand and address online safeguarding risks – any time, anywhere.

  • Set parental controls so that you can block certain sites, images and content online.
  • Report your concerns. If you are worried about online sexual abuse or the way someone has been communicating with your child online, let CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection command) know
