e-safety at home

At Stannington we always promote safe e-learning practices at home and in school.  We do this through discussions in computing lessons or whenever we use technology. We also hold termly e-safety assemblies to promote safe use of technology.
Remote learning means that children are spending even more time online.
Stay safe during this challenging time by ensuring you know what your children are doing AT ALL TIMES on their:
  1. Phone
  2. Tablet
  3. Latop
  4. Computer
  5. Playstation
  6. Xbox
  7. Any other device which can go online
Ask your children to show you what they are doing online, take an interest in their online choices to make sure they are acceptable. Click on the Learn to Fly tab on this website and select 'E-Safety'. Explore the website links together with your family so that you feel comfortable that your child recognises how to stay safe online.

An important message from Stannington First School and the NSPCC:

'Home isn’t always a safe place. Schools closing could put some children at greater risk of abuse and neglect and that’s why we’re supporting the NSPCC. If you’re worried about a child or young person, or if you notice that something just doesn’t seem right, the @NSPCC is here. You can talk to their helpline team who offer free support and guidance on 0808 800 5000 (8am-10pm Mon-Fri / 9am-6pm weekends) or you can email help@nspcc.org.uk 24/7.

Now that we’re in lockdown, sadly home is more dangerous than ever for some children. That’s why we’re supporting the @NSPCC who are still here if you need advice or support, or you’re worried about a child or young person. Please call their helpline on 0808 800 5000 or email help@nspcc.org.uk.'

There you will find lots of key information on how to keep your child safe at home.
