Online Safety with your Child at Home
At Wykeham, the health, safety and well-being of all our pupils are of paramount importance to all the adults who work in our school. Working together with parents and carers, we aim to ensure that every pupil in our care is safe online. We have put in place a number of measures to ensure that your child is safe when at school. Please think about these tips to help keep your child safe:
- Talk to your child about what they're up to online;
- Watch ThinkUKnow films and cartoons with your child;
- Discuss any issues that may occur in the media and be able to offer advice and strategies for your child;
- Keep up-to-date with your child's development online;
- Set boundaries in the online world just as you would in the real world.
- Use parental controls on devices that link to the internet; e.g. TV, laptop, computers, tablets, games consoles and mobile phones;
- Help your child to understand that they should never give out personal details to online friends.
- If your child receives spam/junk emails, texts, remind them never to believe them, reply to them or to use them.
- It's not a good idea for your child to open files that are from people they don't know.
- Help your child to understand that some people do not always tell the truth online. They may be saying something to deceive them.
- Ensure your child understands never to agree to meet anyone without informing an adult or agrees to meet them without informing an adult. They may not who your child thinks they are! If the person is genuine, the person will not object to an adult accompanying them on a visit.
- Teach your child how to block someone online and to report anything if they feel uncomfortable.
