Year 6 Safer Internet Use Presentation
On Thursday 18th May we were, once again, lucky enough to have Stephen Shepherd in school to discuss safe internet use. This time he talked with our year 6 children about the choices they needed to be thinking about if they were to continue making good use of the technology available to them. There were discussions about how we should communicate on the World Wide Web (keeping personal information private), getting adult help to ensure privacy setting are good in games and apps, age appropriate game/social media choices and what your digital footprint tells the world about you. The relevance of the information to the children's lives was clearly shown in their enthusiastic participation in the dialogue (and apparently follow up discussions at home!).
Parent E-Safety Event - November 30th 2016
As the safety of our children is always at the forefront of our minds we are pleased to be able to offer our parents an opportunity to attend an E-Safety event at White Rock.
On Wednesday 30th November 2016, Stephen Shepherd, a sergeant in the Devon and Cornwall Police who has been seconded to the UK Safer Internet Centre, will provide parent training sessions. There will be two sessions for you to choose from, the first at 9.15 am and the second at 7pm.
This is a fantastic opportunity to hear from someone who has up to the minute information about what our children are facing when using technology today. He will be sharing his knowledge and offering advice to support the choices you make at home, which will combine with the children’s knowledge taken from their own e-safety lessons.
The rapidly changing face of technology is very exciting but can also be very intimidating for parents who are worrying about what their children may be accessing. The aim of these sessions is to give you as much information and support as we can.
Please note: the content of the event is not suitable for anyone under 18.
At White Rock we realise that keeping our children safe on-line is a shared responsibility. With this in mind we have found an amazing resource which will support you at home by keeping you up to date with the technology available today - Vodafone Digital Parenting Magazine. If you follow the link on this page you will be able to access this as well as a wide range of other information.
