At Tany's Dell Primary School, we take the Online Safety of our children very seriously. As a school community, we continue to do lots of work to ensure that our children are aware of the dangers they face online and to use the internet positively. We aim to create an open and honest environment where children can share any worries they have about their online activity with teachers, parents and peers.
Every child in our school reads and signs a set of Online Safety Rules with their parent, to ensure that they stay safe online both at school and at home. Please see these below.
Online Safety experts 'The 2 Johns' visit our school bi-annually to conduct training for staff, pupils and parents. Their visit is always highly informative and supports the school community in safeguarding our children. Please visit their website for the most up to date information, which can be used to help keep your child safe online.
Below, are some helpful websites that children can explore with their parents and carers, to help them become better equipped to deal with problems that may arise online.
Parents and Carers are encouraged to visit the NSPCC Website for more support with helping their children to stay safe online. Adults are also available in school to help with any queries you may have.
