Online Safety 

Online Safety encompasses not only Internet technologies but also electronic communications via mobile phones, tablets, computers, games consoles and wireless technology. It highlights the need to educate both children and adults about the benefits, risks and responsibilities of using all forms of information technology.

  • Online Safety targets the safeguarding of children and young people in the digital world
  • Online Safety emphasises learning to understand and use new technologies in a positive way
  • Online Safety is less about restriction and more about education
  • Online Safety  is concerned with supporting safer online behaviours both in and out of school

At Reydon Primary School, we believe that online safety is the responsibility of the whole school community. We believe everyone has their part to play in ensuring that everyone is able to benefit from the opportunities that technology provides for learning with confidence and in safety.

Our online safety lead is: Ali Hurren.

Online safety Websites for Parents, Guardians and Adults

(Please be aware that we have no control of the content that you may find on external websites)

The Internet has become part of our everyday lives and is now easier to access then ever before.

Use of the Internet can also have risks. Young people are more at risk of exposure to inappropriate or criminal behaviour if they are unaware of the dangers.

These dangers include:

  • viewing unsuitable content e.g. hate material, adult content, sites that endorse unhealthy behaviour
  • giving out personal information
  • arranging to meet an online 'friend'
  • becoming involved in, or the victim of, bullying, identity theft, or making and sending indecent or illegal images
  • spending too much time online (internet addiction), which can effect concentration, sleep and health
  • copying information from the Internet or buying work from other people to use as their own.

The links below are for your information, but also to share with your children if you feel that they are appropriate.
