Worth Primary School has secure 'filtering and monitoring' systems and procedures to support keeping your child safe in school. The school carries our weekly reports to check internet access and is alerted to any concerns.
Do’s and Don’ts
- Know what your children are doing on-line and who they are talking to.
- Ask them to teach you to use any applications you have never used.
- Keep the computer in a family room so that you can share your child’s on-line experience – and they will be less likely to act inappropriately (i.e. via webcam).
- Help your children to understand that they should never give out personal details to on-line friends – personal information includes their messenger ID, email address, mobile number and any pictures of themselves, their family or friends.
- If your child publishes a picture or video on-line, anyone can change it or share it. Remind them that anyone may be looking at their images and one day a future employer could!
- If your child receives spam/junk email and texts, remind them never to believe them, reply to them or use them.
- It’s not a good idea for your child to open files that are from people they don’t know. They won’t know what they contain – it could be a virus, or worse, an inappropriate image or film.
- Help your child to understand that some people lie on-line and therefore it’s better to keep on-line mates on-line.
- They should never meet up with any strangers without an adult they trust.
- Always keep communication open for a child to know that it’s never too late to tell someone if something makes them feel uncomfortable.
