It can be hard to talk to your child about Online Safety and at Pennthorpe we take Online Safety seriously and do all we can to support you and we are committed to online safety in partnership with 360Safe.
We ensure that children’s use of the internet is carefully filtered at school so that viewing inappropriate material is very unlikely. It can be difficult to create the same safe space for internet use at home. Teaching children to be safe online is about more than just blocking inappropriate content. In school, our Online safety lessons with children focus on developing responsible digital citizens through responsible use of the internet, understanding digital foot prints, recognising and minimising risks, sharing information wisely, and knowing what to do if they see or hear something inappropriate or that they are uncomfortable with.
We are keen to keep parents and carers informed and hope that this page directs you to information to help support and engage in discussions with your children about Online Safety. If you need any further advice or have a useful resource to add, please let us know.
