Set out clear rules for when your child can access the Internet and for how long.
Children will use digital technologies in ways that we could only have dreamed of when we were at school. St Johns Academy are committed to keeping our children safe when they are online. Please help your child at home by monitoring your child’s use of ICT and by talking about ways in which they can use technology both safely and responsibly at all times.
Try and have the computer or device in a family room or space, so you can monitor them while they use the Internet.
Talk to your child about the Internet, and discuss websites that they can access. Keep them in a ‘favourites’ folder so they can access them easily.
Explain about the meaning of ‘Personal Information’ and the importance of keeping this to themselves, especially online.
Either contact your service provider or use software to provide online security. You can ask your provider to block certain websites.
Discuss about opening files and attachments, explaining that they could be harmful to the computer.
Make it easy for them to come and talk about anything they encounter online that makes them feel uncomfortable.
