E-Safety and Digital Leaders

E-Safety At Comberton

 
We consider the safety of the children of paramount importance. In a modern world, this includes ensuring they are safe on the internet and with the technology they use. The internet is a wonderful resource that we all make use of, however it can be a dangerous place to be. In school we educate the children, throughout their time here, about what those dangers are and how they can protect themselves from them. We have a system in place which filters what the children are able to see and do whilst using the internet in school. Children also know who Hector the dolphin is and how to use him to keep them safe on the computers. 

 

Digital Leaders

 

We have established Digital Leaders at Comberton Primary School, consisting of pupils and staff, along with a  local PCSO representative. We have representatives from each Key Stage 2 class, whose job it is to keep the rest of the school informed and up to date when it comes to E-Safety. Digital Leaders can also offer technical support and help in computing lessons.

 

Safer Internet Day

Each year, we celebrate Safer Internet Day as part of our E-Safety curriculum. This year, the theme is: Together for a better internet.  In our lessons we will be focusing on how to be careful with our personal information online, as well as teaching children how to use images and social media responsibly. All children, from Reception to Year 6 have thought about how they can play their part in building a better internet.

For more information and support on how to stay safe, take a look at their website.  http://www.saferinternet.org.uk/

Helping at Home

We strongly recommend that you consider how safe the internet environment is for your children at home. Take a look at the ThinkUKnow website by using the link below. They have some fabulous games, videos and information about staying safe online that may help you protect your children and be aware of the risks.

If you see something or become aware of an online danger, you can report it to CEOP (Child Exploitation & Online Protection Centre) who will investigate the concern.

SID TV 2019: Your Choice or Mine - film for parents and carers

We put young people and their parents head-to-head in a game show and asked them questions about consent online. We wanted to find out if parents and their children have the same or differing opinions on a range of online consent topics.

Digital Parenting: How to promote E-Safety at home - not just on Safer Internet Day, but all year round!

We are also aware that many children of primary school age have access to mobile internet technology such as smart phones and tablets, which they can use to access social networking sites such as Instagram, Snapchat and YouTube. The minimum age to have an account on these sites is 13. If you would like any more information on this, we have included parents' guides below to these sites.

We have also included links to a number of mobile operator's sites that have sections of their website dedicated to E-Safety.
