The safety of children is of paramount importance to everybody at Oakdale Primary School. We have very good provision at school and the children tell us that they feel safe in school. We have regular e-safety weeks and lessons to help the children further develop their own understanding of how to stay safe in an increasing online and electronic world. You may have heard of CEOP- the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre, and they have produced a series of videos and games that will inform our provision in school. They have also produced some excellent parent resources and you can access them via www.thinkyouknow.co.uk. The resources are organised into specific age bands as certain content is inappropriate for certain aged children.Please look at these resources and talk to your child about e-safety.
Virgin Media O2 experts have created a children’s internet safety test to help build awareness for parents and children of all ages to ensure they are better protected online.
The Parent Info site provides lots of handy tip for parents to support learning at home. The newsletter for this is found on the page below and is refreshed regularly.
A further useful resource is NSPCC Net Aware. This provides information about chat sites and how to support your children to stay safe online:
