Advice for parents/carers to keep children safe online
We would like to remind parents to make sure they monitor the content of games, websites and apps that the children are downloading from the internet. It is important to keep a check on what your children are doing online. The ‘Think u Know’ website is a great resource to get you up to speed and also has tools to help you create a safe environment.
The internet can be a fantastic place for children and young people where they can talk to friends, be creative and have fun. However, just like in the real world sometimes things can go wrong.
If you or your child are worried or upset about something which has happened on the internet there is help out there.

Being online is an integral part of children and young people’s lives. Social media, online games, websites and apps can be accessed through a number of devices including 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.
Online safety forms a fundamental part of keeping children safe at Cranbrook Primary School. We have extensive security measures in place in school, which are monitored both internally and externally, to help safeguard pupils from potential dangers or unsuitable material and any Online safety incidents are recorded and managed. Online safety is taught to all pupils explaining and demonstrating how to stay safe and behave appropriately online.
We can only be successful in keeping children safe online if we work with parents to ensure the Online safety message is consistent. It is important that parents speak to their children about how they can keep safe and behave appropriately online.
