Staying Safe Online
We provide support for children and families in using technology safely.
At All Saints Primary School, we recognise the importance that technology plays, and will continue to play, in the lives of our children, parents, and staff. We embrace this technology and aim to fully harness it within our teaching and learning. We understand the need for this technology to be used safely and responsibly. Our aim is to equip our children with the skills and knowledge to take their place as 21st Century citizens. The internet has changed all of our lives, particularly our children’s. For this reason, we strongly encourage sensible use of age-appropriate digital and online technologies. These digital resources open up huge possibilities for learning for all of our children; children can use the internet to research new information and connect to children they know online or via mobile phone. For parents and carers, this opens up a whole new world of things to be aware of, in particular the need to ensure your child’s safe and responsible use of technology. On the links below, you will find lots of useful information about online safety here at school.
National Online Safety Hub
At Otley All Saints, we are proud members of the National Online Safety Hub. This is a fantastic online resource that provides guidance and advice to parents/carers, staff, governors and children. Please see the January online safety letter for more details.
Parents and carers
We encourage parents and carers to sign up to this resource. Please use the link below.
It is very important that, when signing up, you state that you are a parent so that you are able to view the correct content. We may direct your attention to specific parts of the hub at various points in the year linked to either national guidance or specific issues involving your child’s class or age range. There are also parent courses that you are able to complete to further develop your own understanding around Online Safety.
