http://www.saferinternet.org.uk/advice-centre/parents-and-carers/parents-guide-technology has created a guide to explain these devices and highlights the safety tools available, empowering parents with the knowledge they need to support their children to use these technologies safely and responsibly.
NATIONAL SAFETY ONLINE provide regular leaflets to explain how to protect children from the latest online issues.
You may need to sign up to download the guides. If you would like any of them, but don't want to sign on, feel free to email school to get you one.
When we are able to invite parents back into school, they will be freely available on the E-Safety table in the entrance hall.
A few important tips:
No search engine is ever completely safe and appropriate supervision should always be given. Have you considered bookmarking search engines suitable for children to use?
DK Find Out! - http://www.dkfindout.com/uk/ which searches Dorling Kindersley content
Swiggle (SWGfL) http://www.swiggle.org.uk
NICE for Primary Schools - http://nice.medialab.nl which is a search engine and library
Kids Rex - http://www.kidrex.org/ which is a search engine
Primary School ICT - http://primaryschoolict.com/ which is a video, picture and website search engine
If your child uses search engine sites such as Google or Bing, please ensure that you have turned the safe search filtering tools on. However, this this only reduces (not removes) the possibility of accessing inappropriate content either accidentally or otherwise.
