On Line Safety

A family agreement is a great way to start a conversation as a whole family about how the internet should be used safely and responsibly when online at home, at school or at a friend's house.

To support parents in creating a family agreement Childnet International have put together some free advice and a helpful family agreement template for families to use as a starting point.

Please find below two documents to help you create your own family agreement

Children at Whiston use the Internet on a regular basis as part of their learning. In school, we have regular 'e-safety' activities to remind children of the importance of keeping themselves safe online.

At home, sometimes children can be given unsupervised access to the Internet. This, potentially, allows them to access all kinds of society (both good and bad) and bring them virtually into their homes.

Here are some tips and useful links to help you to keep your children safe online:

  • Explore e-safety sites - There are lots of links to useful e-safety sites for children in our Children's Zone. They are great fun to explore, so why not browse through them with your children?
  • Facebook / Bebo / Myspace - Many of these sites have a minimum age limit of 13, so our pupils should NOT be using them.
  • Keep your computer in a shared area - Talk to your child about what they are doing online and, if possible, set up your computer in a shared area at home so that you can all share in the wonderful sites that are available online.

We have these e-safety posters on display in our classrooms. Why not put one up next to the computer at home and talk about it with your children?
