Working together to help prevent abuse and keep children and young people safe:
We hope to compile a termly newsletter for parents to give information and guidance on Online safety, parental setting and signposting useful sites to keep our children safe.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org, texting 88858* or contacting us online at nspcc.org.uk/ 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.

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
