E-safety

 It is important to us that pupils receive the full benefits of the technology we have to offer but it is equally important to us that our pupils are educated on using technology safely. E-safety is rooted in our curriculum and is continually revisited throughout the year.  It is vital that our pupils are aware of how to ensure they stay safe when using technology in school and at home, as well as educating our children of where to seek help if they do come across something that concerns them when using technology.
If you have any queries regarding e-safety and safeguarding, please email Mrs Legg on clegg@bramingham.net
Safer Internet Day
We are sure you will all agree that particularly under the current circumstances, it is important that parents and children understand the importance of e-safety.  We, at Bramingham, highlight the importance of Safer Internet Day each year. In addition to the day,  e-safety is embedded throughout our computing and PHSE curriculum. Below are some links - for tips and advice. 
CEOP HOME ACTIVITY PACKS FOR PARENTS
 
CEOP has created a page to support parents during Covid-19 and the closure of schools. Each fortnight, they will be releasing new home activity packs with simple 15 minute activities you can do with your child to support their online safety at home. There are separate pages for each of the age groups as listed below. (Click on the link to go to the page you require).
 
 
 
FORTNITE - a parent's guide.
 
Read the information here to find out more about Fortnite and things you should be aware of in order to help your child stay safe online.
 
Note that Fortnite has been rated as suitable for ages 12 and upwards, but there is no age verification process, so there is nothing to stop younger children accessing it. There are risks associated with it. As a parent, the most important thing that you can do is to talk to your child about his or her online activity. Make sure you know what they're doing, who they're talking to, and consider taking additional appropriate steps to make sure they stay safe.
 
Talk to us at school if you are concerned about your child's online behaviour, or if you have any queries.
Speak to your child's class teacher or email Mrs. Robinson on brobinson@bramingham.net
