Please click this link to the view CEOPS twitter - they are regularly releasing new online internet safety activity packs from primary children 

The internet is an amazing resource which enables children and young people to connect, communicate and be creative in a number of different ways, on a range of devices. However, the internet is always changing, and being able to keep up to date with your children’s use of technology can be a challenge. You may sometimes feel that your children have better technical skills than you do, however children and young people still need advice and protection when it comes to managing their lives online and using the internet positively and safely.

At Holy Family Primary School we make sure our pupils are aware of some of the risks to safety that are online and what to do to stay safe. We have a set of SMART rules which the children are expected to follow at home and in school to make sure they stay safe online. These rules can be viewed below and should be followed when using all kinds of technology such as mobile phones, games consoles and home computers.

E-safety is introduced to pupils through the computing curriculum and in addition, it is addressed each year during PSHE/Citizenship lessons. We also run e-safety assemblies and parent workshops and special events such as Safer Internet Day which takes place in February each year.  

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 online resources will help you support your child's journey through the digital world. There are also some links to other e-safety resources, including games, quizzes and advice for parents and carers. We also encourage parents to set up filtering on their home internet. To learn how to do this for the major providers of internet please click this link.


If you have any concerns about safety online, please contact the school on 02476 333631.
