Online safety

 

The Internet has become an integral part of children’s lives, enabling them to undertake research for school projects, talk to their friends and access information from around the world. However, increasing use of the Internet in and out of schools brings with it the need to ensure that learners are safe.

Internet development is constantly evolving into ever more innovative areas with many websites enabling amazing creativity and interaction between peers.  Unfortunately though, there are times when Internet use can have a negative effect on children.

 

At Silver Springs, we have measures in place to ensure that using the Internet is a positive and safe experience.

  • Is your child old enough to go on a particular website? Have a look at this guide to see what is recommended and why.

Publishing pupil’s images and work

  • Pupils’ full names will not be used anywhere on the website or blog, particularly in association with photographs.
