On-Line Safety

The On-Line Safety team have been busy completing a survey about the apps and games the children at White Rock use at home. Using the website 'Common Sense Media', they have been researching the suitability of these apps and games. In the near future they will use what they have learned to help parents encourage their children to make safe choices.

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!).

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.

Is your internet provided by...BT, Sky, Virgin or Talk Talk?

Each of these providers offers free parental control filters as part of their package. Click on the link below to find out how to set these up.

For any older children you have, or even yourselves, here are some links for downloading PDF checklist leaflets for Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram and Twitter. These leaflets show how to set privacy levels, etc. which you may find useful.
