E-Safety for Parents
E-safety in the 21st Century is seen as an essential area of learning. It plays an important role in the everyday lives of children, young people and adults. Consequently, schools need to equip young people with the skills they will need to make wise choices and stay safe online.
At Wellstead Primary School, we not only focus on e-safety during anti-bullying week and internet safety day, but we weave e-safety throughout our computing curriculum to revisit this regularly because at Wellstead Primary School, we understand the responsibility and importance of ensuring that the children are aware of and understand a range of e-safety issues.
For parents and carers the internet has opened a whole new world dangers and opportunities. Parents can sometimes struggle to keep up with what their children are doing online while others – who may be quite used to using the technology themselves – perhaps don’t realise that children need to be supervised while accessing the internet, therefore we also send out current and relevant information to parents or respond to parental concerns, if appropriate. At the school, we teach e-safety at an age-appropriate level to each year group and run workshops on specific issues using our links with the Police Commissioners Office and our trained cyber ambassadors to support any peer-to-peer learning.

Below are a number of websites and links to support parents / carers in being aware of the dangers online and ways that you can support your child in keeping safe when using the internet.
