At Newlands Primary School we take all aspects of pupil's safety as priority. Whilst the Internet is a fantastic resource for learning, entertainment and communication, it does have the potential to pose a risk. At school we teach the children about how to keep safe online, we participate in the Safer Internet Day initiative and we have worked with other schools in the Redbridge and Lordshill Federation to produce and promote the Lock it, Block it, Show it, Tell it initiative.
Parents and carers play a key role in supporting children to learn about how to stay safe online, and they are one of the first people children turn to if things go wrong. We know it can be difficult to stay on top of the wide range of sites and devices that young people use, so we hope that the following advice helps.
There is a lot of support available to keep your child safe online. Below are some useful links to help parents and carers:
