Always be careful when you are using the internet. It can help you to keep in touch with your friends and help your education – but it can also cause harm – to you and to others.

Remember help is always available at school if you are having any problems online. Don’t be afraid to talk to your teacher or another adult at school.

 

The Manorfield Internet Code

The Manorfield Internet Code 1

Introduction

E-safety is an integral part of your child’s education here at Manorfield Primary and Nursery School, in an increasingly digital world.  As children grow older, it is crucial that they:

 

• Balance the benefits offered by technology with an awareness of their own and other’s online behavior

• Develop effective strategies for staying safe and making a positive contribution online

 

Adults need to be actively engaged in their children’s online lives because children may spend a large proportion of their life online.  From an early age, children have access to the Internet at home and research says,

 

‘Children want their parents to be involved and supportive.’  NSPCC

 

Here at Manorfield Primary and Nursery School, we aim to support our parents by improving their own understanding of e-safety issues so they can learn to support their children as they use the internet and all digital media in a safe and secure way.

 

Remember - help is always available at school if you are having any problems or questions about e-safety. Do not be afraid to come and ask: there is no such thing as a silly question.

 

 

Key Tips for Parents to Support your Child Online
As recommended by the NSPCC

 

Take an interest in your child’s online activity

Do you take an interest in your child’s online activity?

Taking an interest helps you to understand the websites, apps and games children are using and to make sure they are appropriate.

Talk as a TEAM

Can you work with your child as a TEAM?

Talk – chat to your child about what they’re doing online.

Explore - and understand the websites, apps and games.

Agree – Devise and create family ground rules.

Manage – Adapt privacy settings and use adult controls.

Build children’s trust

Can you have regular open and honest conversations with your child? If things go wrong or mistakes happen, how will you support/reassure your child?

Use the technical tools

Do you use all parental controls available to you? Have you supported your child with their privacy settings? Have you thought about how spend-limits and time-settings can be used to control your child’s online experience?
