e-Safety is an important part of keeping children safe at Milford-on-Sea Primary School, because we recognise that the internet is essential in 21st century life - for education, for business and for social interaction. As children move up through the school their access to various types of technology increases and it stands to reason that their exploration and curiosity increases too. The positives of the digital world overwhelmingly outweigh the negatives but children, schools and parents all need to be aware of various online risks.
Our Computing curriculum has e-safety woven through it and allows our staff to discuss, explain and demonstrate how to stay safe and behave appropriately online.
While we will be doing all we can at school, your help is still needed to support our e-safety message and prevent children accessing inappropriate material at home by way of filters and parental controls. Look below at our list of links and resources for Parents/Carers, Teachers and Young People to help you with your child’s online safety at home.
At Milford-on-Sea Primary School, we follow the SMART rules for safe use of the internet. Here they are:
