Children at Dilton Marsh CEVC Primary School use the Internet on a regular basis as part of their learning.

In school, we have regular ‘Online-safety’ activities to remind children of the importance of keeping themselves safe online. At home, sometimes children can be given unsupervised access to the Internet. This, potentially, allows them to access all kinds of society (both good and bad) and bring them virtually into their homes.

Here are some tips and useful links to help you to keep your children safe online:

  • Facebook/Bebo/Myspace/Snapchat/Twitter/Instagram and Youtube – These sites have a minimum age limit of 13, so pupils should NOT be using them. This is so that children’s details and credentials can be protected by The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) passed in 1998.
  • Keep your computer in a shared area – Talk to your child about what they are doing online and, if possible set up your computer in a shared area at home so that you can all share in the wonderful sites that are available online.

Online Safety Information 

Each term we produce and send out a copy of our Online Safety Newsletter to all parents. This includes updates on websites, things to try at home and suggestions for safe use of the internet and mobile technology.

Further information on our Online Safety teaching and useful documents can be found in our Online Safety under the curriculum tab.
