Online Safety

At our school we are aware that digital technology is now fully integrated into the daily lives of our pupils. The children fully embrace new technologies as a source of information, education and entertainment, both in school and at home. Children often have a high skill level and confidence when using these technologies.

At Petersfield Infant school we want to ensure that children feel empowered to keep themselves safe online. The children take part in regular online safety lessons in school, to help them understand the importance of staying safe when using digital devices.

Advice from several charities can be found here:

Keeping your child safe online – A checklist for parents and carers (CEOP)

Tips to help keep your child safe online (NSPCC)

Online safety for under fives (NSPCC)
