At Sythwood we believe that children should not be completely restricted on what they can access but to educate them to make the right choices and become responsible users of technology. We teach a unit of Esafety at the start of the academic year to ensure all children are up to date on how to stay safe when using the internet as well as regular assemblies and PSHE lessons around responsible use.
In addition to this we hold parent internet safety talks to teach about the benefits of using technology to enhance learning but also to educate on how to keep their children safe online . Additional information can be found on the Thinkuknow.co.uk website and Parent Zone. These sites are a freely available service launched by CEOP and The Parent Zone which brings together the most up-to-date content aimed at parents. The content is written by leading experts in their fields and covers pornography to eating disorders, sexting to violent extremism.
