Being online is an integral part of children and young people’s lives. Social media, online games, websites, and apps can be accessed through mobile phones, computers, laptops, and tablets – all of which form a part of children and young people’s online world.
The internet and online technology provide new opportunities for young people’s learning and growth, but it can also expose them to new types of risks.
At Portway Junior School, as part of our PSHE and Computing curriculums, we teach children about online safety. Our objectives range from teaching children how to be responsible online users to how to keep themselves safe online.
Keeping children safe online extends beyond the classroom. Below we have put together a range of useful links to help you keep your child safe online. There are also apps which can give you parental control, so your children do not access inappropriate content.
If you have any inquiries or worries about safeguarding, please don't hesitate to contact us here at the school. We will provide you with the appropriate answers and support to address your concerns.
