E-safety

The students at Manorfield regularly use the internet as part of their education. All children have participated in e-safety lessons and activities to show children the importance of keeping themselves safe online.

When at home, sometimes the students access the internet unsupervised. This could possibly allow them access to a range of sites, both good and bad. It also allows interaction with all kinds of society and can allow virtual access into their homes.

Here are some tips and useful links to help you to keep your children safe online: 

Acceptable Use

During lessons your child's teacher will have talked through the acceptable use policy with the class. This explains how pupils are expected to use technology in school. They will have then signed their name to tell their teacher that they will follow these rules.

A copy of the rules they are expected to follow can be found here:

Internet Matters

An online safety portal is available to parents to give more information about what children might be doing online, the issues they may face and what you can do to help. This portal is www.internetmatters.org. The following link is to a youtube video introducing this portal, supported by Sophie Ellis-Baxter: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xz8T9jTxBDI

This website also has a link to a free app of the story ‘Digiduck’s big decision’. This is a fantastic story to read with younger children to help them understand issues online and what they can do if they face them.
