Our Commitment To Our Parents

Our Commitment To Our Parents

 

The Staff and Governors of St Charles Primary School take internet safety extremely seriously. Whilst acknowledging the massive benefits that the Internet and electronic media bring in terms of education, communication, and sharing of resources, we are also mindful that there are adults who would use such media to try and gain unlawful and possibly harmful access to our children. We will strive to ensure that whilst in school our children can enjoy using the Internet without facing any of these dangers. Our Chair of Governors Mr Yates who is a safeguarding professional is lead governor on E-Safety and works very closely with Mr Kennedy who oversees the website. Our school E-Safety policy is reviewed and updated annually and all members of staff and governors are fully aware of their responsibilities to safeguard your children in an ever-changing electronic age.

Our Suggestions To Parents

Our Suggestions To Parents

We need to know what our children are doing online. Potentially they can face more harm in their bedrooms than on the streets!

  • Ask them to show you the websites they use
  • Keep the family computer in a family room
  • Help your children to understand they must never give out personal details online. These include phone numbers, e-mail addresses, and pictures
  • Encourage your child to tell you if they see anything online that makes them uncomfortable or frightened. Tell them it is possible to access such areas of the Internet accidentally and they have not done anything wrong. Better still, reward them for their honesty.

Social Networking Sites

Social Networking Sites

Many of our parents and staff use social networking sites recreationally and to keep in touch with friends. Please be aware that such sites are used by adult offenders to make contact with potential victims. Never feel pressurised into creating a fictitious age for your children to gain access just as you would not buy them cigarettes. You would not want to teach them that rules do not matter on  certain occasions. If your children are using Facebook please make them aware that it is not appropriate to ask staff members to be their “friends.” We would also respectfully point out that any parent or carer who defames any member of staff or questions their professional integrity on social media platforms will have that content sent to the LEA legal team to establish if it breaks the law. It is not acceptable to use public forums to criticise or abuse our members of staff.
