The internet is essential in 21st century life for education, business and social interaction. As children move up through the school their access to various types of technology increases and it stands to reason that their exploration and curiosity increases too. The positives of the digital world overwhelmingly outweigh the negatives but children, schools and parents all need to be aware of various online risks.
At Pinner Wood School we follow the smart rules:
If you would like to share any information or require any further support please do not hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher.
Your help is still needed to prevent children accessing inappropriate material at home by way of filters and parental controls. Look below at our extensive list of links and resources for Parents/Carers, Teachers and Young People to help you with your child’s online safety at home.
How to use the internet safely
Safer Internet Day 2024
On Tuesday 6th February, the children had an assembly for Safer Internet Day 2024. The focus was on 'Change' and how the internet, apps and games are constantly changing. It looked at how some of these changes can make us feel excited and curious, but also feel worried, scared or anxious. Please find attached links to The UK Safer Internet Centre which has some fantastic information about how to approach discussion with children, and answer any questions you may have about parental control and other advice.
More information can be found in our online safety policy on our policies and procedures page.
