Internet Safety

All computers in the academy are web filtered to ensure appropriate websites are accessed.

However it has come to our attention that some children, unknown to their parents, are accessing inappropriate and offensive images via the internet using Google Sites and YouTube.

We would strongly advise you monitor and talk to your child about what they access, and the best practice is to keep the computer in a family room, not a child’s bedroom.

Have a look at the excellent safety website http://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/ It has sections for children aged 5-7, 8-10, 11-16 with some excellent videos, as well as resources for parents.

'The Safer Internet Centre - https://www.saferinternet.org.uk/ - is a great site offering information and support in their Advice Centre. There is also a hotline, on which you can contact someone regarding concerns for your children.

There is also lots of information about 'Safer Internet Day' - https://www.saferinternet.org.uk/safer-internet-day - which Noel Park Primary School will be taking part in on Tuesday 6th February 2018.
