E-Safety

The internet plays such a vital role in children's lives and learning. It opens up so many educational and social opportunities, giving access to, quite literally, a world of information and experiences.

Whether on a computer at school, a laptop at home, a games console, tablet or mobile phone, children and young people are increasingly accessing the internet whenever they can and wherever they are.

As you would protect your child in the real world, you will want to make sure that they are safe whatever they are doing. If your child understands the risks and can make sensible and informed choices online, they can get the most from the internet and stay safe whilst doing so – particularly from those people who might seek them out to harm them.

E-Safety is taught at Bishopspark to all children before they embark on an internet based unit of work, and revisited periodically at other times of the year. As well as using various resources online, we also deliver resources found in the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOPs).

Your continued support at home is important also. For information and advice visit CEOPs ‘Think You Know’ site with a section specifically tailored for parents.

Safety land is normally a very nice place to live, but a nasty character is sending yucky emails and messages. Captain Broadband needs your help to find the nasty character. You need to navigate around Safety land answering questions. When you have answered them all correctly, the nasty character will be taken to jail and you’ll become a certified hero, just like Captain Broadband.
