Here at Westdale we take E-Safety very seriously. We ensure we teach the children how to be safe when using the internet.
Below are some helpful links to websites and resources that we use in school or recommend you to use at home with your child (all the titles are clickable!)
Smartie is a resource we have used in Year 1 (but is suitable for children aged 3-7) to discuss what children should do if they come across things that they're unsure about while using the internet.
A cartoon to help children stay safe online.
"Come in to find the latest information on the sites you like to visit, mobiles and new technology. Find out what’s good, what’s not and what you can do about it. If you look after young people there’s an area for you too – with resources you can use in the classroom, at home or just to get with it. Most importantly, there’s also a place which anyone can use to report if they feel uncomfortable or worried about someone they are chatting to online. All the information here is brought to you by the team at the Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) Centre. We hope you like it!"
