At St James' we take all aspects of the children's safety very seriously and this includes teaching them to use the internet appropriately, both at school and at home. As a London Grid for Learning school, we have access to many eSafety resources targeted specifically for children and their families, to inform on the many aspects of safety that come with the use of all technology that is capable of connecting with the internet. Why not logon (using your child's My USO logon sent home by letter) to LGFL's Cyberpass section. There are informative videos and tips and quizzes to test your knowledge.
Following our eSafety Coffee Morning at OJR, click here to find all the links mentioned at the presentation.
Below is just a small number of links to a huge selection of resources that we think will help inform your internet use as a family, click on the links together and find a wealth of information. We also include some resources for parents at the bottom of the page including the use of privacy settings to keep your personal details private. Many games appear to be child-friendly but actually are not moderated by the owners of the site which inevitably allows the potential for cyberbullying and grooming to take place within the chat facilities of the site. There are always new 'crazes' of games and sites gaining popularity with children; by sharing the experience of your child's online presence, playing the games together, talking about what is and is not appropriate, you help protect your family from becoming involved in unsuitable situations.
