Being online is an integral part of children and young people’s lives. Social media, online games, websites and apps can be accessed through mobile phones, computers, laptops and tablets – all of which form a part of children and young people’s online world.
The internet and online technology provides new opportunities for young people’s learning and growth, but it can also expose them to new types of risks.
E-safety should form a fundamental part of schools’ and colleges’ safeguarding and child protection measures and at Carleton Green we aim to educate children on how to be safe online and you can help us by being aware at home too.
Government guidance for schools across the UK highlights the importance of safeguarding children and young online.
The website below has lots of informative articles/advice to support parents at home with online safety. If you have Facebook or Twitter you can also follow the campaign 'Wake up Wednesday' which offers new guidance weekly.
If you ever have any concerns please contact us at school where we will be more than happy to help.
