Online Safety

 

At Anns Grove, online safety is a key driver within PSHE lessons.  We have adopted the Sheffield Online Safety Curriculum scheme of work to cover the online safety curriculum.    Within each year group, the units of work cover several of these core themes over the course of an academic year.

We recently had a visit from Sue Finnegan (eLearning Consultant) from Sheffield City Council.  She spoke to groups of children across the school about their online lives.  She then fed back her findings to parents in a meeting in school.  Click here to see the presentation.

 

Are your children using your Netflix account?  We have had instances of children viewing material which is unsuitable for their age as Netflix allows children to select their profile (person watching) when logging in.  This is a setting which can easily be changed and applies to all of your devices.  Follow the link for more information about setting parental controls.

The NSPCC/O2 ‘NetAware’ website has lots of really useful advice about the social networks and apps children use.  It includes reviews of the sites/apps, what parents think of them, what children think of them as well minimum age requirements and information about how to set privacy settings.
