Conduct

Children being exposed to harmful, illegal or inappropriate material.

Children being subjected to harmful online interaction with others.

How children behave and interact themselves.

Examples such as pornography, indecent images, ignoring age ratings on games, films. The list could go on.....

Examples such as grooming(an adult pretending to be a child), any form of cyber-bullying online through social media sites, email. Identity theft. The list could go on.....

Keeping their own information secure, being responsible for their own health and well-being(not spending excessive time online or gaming), considering their own digital footprint and online reputation.The list could go on.....

 

At Victoria Park Junior School we aim to educate our children and empower them to ensure they stay safe and behave appropriately when online. All parents and pupils are required to sign a declaration about the safe use of IT. If you have any concerns or want advice about e-safety at home we are more than willing to help.

 

Here are some resources and guidance to provide more information on ways parents and carers can help to keep children safe.
