The online world is posing an ever-increasing risk to children and it is important that schools, parents and carers work together to take an active role in teaching children about online dangers and how to act safely when using the internet.

We are delighted to announce that St Julie Catholic Primary School is committed to protecting our pupils online and are working with National Online Safety to ensure all our children are safe online.

To create your account, please follow https://nationalonlinesafety.com/enrol/st-julie-s-catholic-primary-school and complete your details. When you’re set up, you’ll be able to set ‘Parent/Carer’ as your user type. 

Once you have registered, you will be able to access the “Online Safety for Parents and Carers’ course and National Online Safety’s Resources (which includes 50+ online platform guides on the latest social media channels and games). This aims to help empower parents with the knowledge to protect their children from the dangers of the internet.

Below are links to  additional websites to ensure that as parents you are well informed about on-line developments on how to keep children safe:

Key messages would be:

  • check age ratings for different apps and games and ensure they are appropriate for your child.
  • know your child's passcode to monitor their on-line activity
  • make children aware of the dangers such as cyber bullying, CSE, CCE and sexting etc etc.
  • be in the same room as your child when they are accessing the internet
  • parents can take any device into an O2 shop where there is a trained person from the NSPCC who can make devices child safe and adjust settings accordingly

The following website is extremely useful for providing a review of the apps that children use.

Safer Internet Day 2023               Picture1(1).png             

Safer Internet Day 2023 will take place on the 7th of February 2023, with celebrations and learning based around the theme Want to talk about it? Making space for conversations about life online’.

 

The celebration sees thousands of organisations get involved to promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.

In the UK, we are celebrating by putting children and young people’s voices at the heart of the day and encouraging them to shape the online safety support that they receive.

 

This year we are hoping to answer the following questions:

  • What issues really matter to children and young people?
  • What changes do they want to see?
  • How can we all work together to advocate for them moving forward?

Safer Internet Day 2023 can be a springboard for conversations that shape how we talk about and respond to online issues, not just for one day, but throughout the whole year
