Online Safety

The internet is a fantastic place overflowing with knowledge, games and communities of people, and, just like pupils across the country, the pupils here at Renishaw Primary School spend a great deal of time using the internet within school and at home. This is why it is important pupils at Renishaw learn how to be safe when browsing online and becoming members of online communities.

Child Safety Online

We also suggest parents visit the website link below for up to date information on Facebook privacy settings, as whilst we know that no children under the age of 13 should be on Facebook, if they are then they should be educated as to how to ensure they are safe

In school, children learn about online safety through a scheme of lessons along with assemblies and workshops with parents. We also encourage parents/carers to talk to their children about how to behave safely when online, to ensure pupils remain safe when browsing at home.

The websites below provide excellent clear guidance for children about online safety, so please click on the image and have a read: there are separate sites for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.
