Internet Safety

Keeping our young people safe when using ICT and online resources is vital, given the recent rise in instances of cyberbullying, sexting, problems associated with social networking sites and the resulting impact on school work

These issues prompted us to conduct our own survey, which questioned all of our pupils about the extent and nature of the time they spend online. After considering the results we organised an internet safety evening for parents to raise awareness of some of the relevant issues and provide them with guidance and support in addressing these at home.

This evening took place on 7th October 2014. We wanted to ensure those parents who attended and wanted to act on the information they heard had access to a range of resources in order to do so. We also wanted to ensure that those who were unable to attend were able to investigate the issue further.

Resources

We have added a number of 'how to' guides to our Vimeo channel. These can be accessed via the Vimeo button on our home page.

They cover the following topics:

  1. How to set parental controls for Google search
  2. How to set parental controls for Youtube
  3. How to set restrictions on an ipad
  4. Facebook privacy settings
  5. Windows 7 Parental Controls - A complete tutorial
  6. Funemo - Parental controls for Android devices

We have also compiled a list of useful websites that allow you to learn more about online safety and how to protect your child. These are available as a downloadable and printable document in our Parents' Section and below for easy browsing.
