The internet has become an important part of children's lives, enabling them to research school projects, talk to their friends and access information from around the world.
Internet development is constantly evolving with many websites enabling amazing creativity and interaction between peers.
Unfortunately though, there are times when Internet use can have a negative effect on children, parents, carers and adults in schools should be aware of the potential dangers and be taking measures to ensure safe usage by all.
The children of Caldecote Lower School are encouraged to use the internet as part of their learning. We hold regular e-safety activities within the school to remind the children of the importance of keeping safe online and what they should do if they feel unsafe or uncomfortable with something they have seen.
Some Tips To Help At Home
Keep your computer in a shared area - Talk to your child about what they are doing online. If the computer is in a shared area it is easier for you to see what sites they are visiting.
Facebook and other social media sites - Many of these sites have a minimum age limit of 13 and as such none of our children should be using them.
Safe Searching - Check your computers settings and modify the search settings if necessary.
