Online Safety

Huncoat primary School is dedicated to keeping our children safe when online. Each child has the right to access Online sites free from harmful images, sites and cyber bullying. The Internet is a necessary and wonderful part of a child's learning - however children need to be aware of the positives of the internet and the negatives as well.

It is our job as responsible adults - in school and at home - to teach our children to use this 21st century internet/ social media/ mobile phones/ game consoles safely and appropriately for their age and for a citizen of the community. Children often have the knowledge to use such media equipment & sites but not the wisdom and as adults we often have the wisdom but not their knowledge. So it is important that keeping children safe from harm is a 2 way discussion between adult and child,

 

As a school and at home we need to educate our children to help them use the internet safely and enjoy being online.
