On-line Safety at St Pius X

 

KEEP YOUR CHILD SAFE ON LINE

 

Having access to online information and the opportunities that the digital world can offer has many benefits and for some it plays an important part of our everyday lives. However, as technology moves on at such a pace, it is sometimes difficult to keep up with new trends and developments, particularly with regard to mobile/games technologies and secure and safe accessibility to online material.

At St Pius X Preparatory School we have policies in place to ensure our children are learning in a safe and secure environment which includes being safe online. The internet is like a magician’s hat. It’s full of exciting things to explore and children love it. But whilst they seem to know what they’re doing, sometimes it’s hard for parents to keep track and we are aware that information is not always easy to find.

We are please to announce that we have registered our school with;     www.net-aware.org.uk

net-aware.org.uk states:                          

“It can be hard to keep track of what your child is doing on social networks, apps and games. Or know how to keep them safe.

That’s why we’ve teamed up with O2. Together we’re helping parents untangle the web. And teach their children to be Share Aware.

Because, just like in real life, kids need your help to stay safe online.”

We would encourage you to look through the link given and take the first steps in talking to your children, being aware of what they do on line and stay up to date with the social networks, apps and games which are available to children.
