E-Safety

There is lots of information for parents, teachers, teenagers and children about how to keep your child safe online using the CEOP ThinkYouKnow Parent portal or at Parent Info.

Parent and Child Safer Internet Use Contract

To make sure your children are kept safe while using the internet at school, we make sure every child has discussed and signed the Teacher / Pupil Safer Internet Use Contract. We discuss this contract with your child's class and cover the important ideas about staying safe online.

We encourage parents to use a similar Parent and Child Safer Internet Use Contract at home.

Parents Guide to eSafety

Here are a couple of guides for parents and carers to help keep your children safe, online. These links can give you advice on what you might not know and can help your child stay safe online.

Online Safety Guidance for Parents Document

Computer Games

We've found that some children play computer games that are inappropriate for their age. Parents have told us that they find it hard to know what is in the games that their children play and that they would like some support with this.

Consequently, we've linked to the Entertainment Software Rating Board here. The site provides recommendations for the age appropriateness of different software titles, together with a description of the type of content that children will come across in playing the game or using the software. The British Board of Film Classification, which provided the age classification for all of the movies we watch in the UK, provides a similar service for films on their website.

iPad apps

At Manley Park we have a system in place where we assess iPad apps for their suitability for use within the school with the pupils. We have a risk assessment that is used for each app that a teacher wishes to use with the children. A copy of the approved apps' risk assessments can be found below.
