BPS Online Safety Advice for Parents

Online safety advice:

We do explicitly teach e-safety within Computing lessons at Bratton Primary School, however, we feel it is also imperative that we work together with you as parents and carers, as well as our wider community, to provide as much information as possible to help safeguard our children and young people. As such please find below key advice that we feel is of great value from the NSPCC:

The NSPCC offer a wide range of resources to help parents, carers and others members of the community, to ensure that they are able to meet their safeguarding responsibilities:

NSPCC Helpline – Parents, carers and members of the public can contact the NSPCC helpline whenever they’re worried about a child by calling 0808 800 5000, emailing, texting 88858* or contacting us online at helpline. The helpline is free, available 24/7 and calls can be made anonymously. This service can also be used for general advice and guidance.

#Goldilocks – A Hashtag Cautionary Tale

Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, YouTube, Twitch… the sheer number of social websites in today’s world can feel endless. So, perhaps it’s not too surprising that 48% of children have been exposed to social media by age seven.
But before you despair, let’s take stock of all the positive outcomes these platforms can have – rallying real change, bridging distances, building communities. The problem is not social media itself. It’s how it’s used.  That’s why it is important for parents to have conversations with their children early on about how to build a healthy relationship with social media. #Goldilocks is a modern twist on the classic fairy tale that offers a fun and accessible way for you to discuss all things social media related with your younger children. Co-branded by Vodafone UK and
Andersen Press, award winning author Jeanne Willis created the light-hearted story alongside illustrator Tony Ross.
The book is designed to help educate children about the potential consequences of being unkind, getting carried away with selfies, or oversharing images, as we see Goldilocks getting into trouble with the three bears over her pursuit of likes on social media….
Please spend some time sharing this book with your child and discussing the important lessons that can be learnt from it.



Online Safety Parent Workshop 

The Stay Safe Initiative led our parent online safety workshop,  The workshop was well attended and this was some of the feedback:

‘Fab session, thank you very much.  Really informative and I am looking forward to receiving the information pack’

‘Thank you so much for the session, it was really useful.  I feel so much better informed now to help my son when he does get social media accounts etc. I now feel I can have these sometimes uncomfortable discussions with him. Thank you.’

‘Thank you, it was so useful and informative.  I feel more equipped as a parent to deal with what may come up.’

‘This session was incredibly useful and has helped with a lot of fears I have concerning the internet and apps.  I will feel much safer when the time comes for my children to have access.  Thank you so much.’

Following the online safety workshop, the ‘Stay Safe Initiative’ have provided further information and resources for parents which can be downloaded using the link below.

How do we keep our children safe online?

The Internet is an essential element of 21st century life for education, business and social interaction, and we have a duty to provide our children with quality Internet access as part of their learning experience.

We believe that teaching our children how to stay safe when using the Internet is an extremely important part of this experience.

In school children are taught about E-Safety as part of the Computing Curriculum. In FS and KS1 children are taught about protecting personal details and how to use the internet responsibly
