E-Safety at Featherstone Primary & Nursery School
The internet has changed all of our lives, particularly our children’s. At Featherstone Primary and Nursery School, we strongly encourage sensible use of digital and online technologies. E-safety is a key integrated part of our Computing Curriculum. Our teaching aims to raise awareness of online risks, so that your child can get the most from the Internet and technology, whilst staying safe.
The positives of technology far outweigh the negatives. As parents, we fear the potential negative impact of social media, cyber-bullying, adult content, predators; we are confronted with so many negative headlines and frightening stories. But the internet offers amazing opportunities for learning, connecting, creating, and collaborating. While it might be tempting to ban internet access on smart phones, tablets, laptops and game consoles, this simply makes children more vulnerable when they access it alone.
E-safety Workshop for Parents
To ensure that you are up to date on how to keep your children safe online, we will be holding numerous E-Safety workshops later on this year.
The session aims to outline to you the benefits of internet use outside school (not only on computers but a range of devices), but also highlight some of the risks posed to children and offer some practical ideas to help parents deal with the issues more confidently. The workshop will also provide you guidance on how to understand how to set up parental controls on home and mobile devices.
If you would like to take part of such an essential and valuable opportunity and attend the workshop, then please keep an eye on our Website for upcoming dates.
