Safer Internet Day 2018
Safer Internet Day (SID) 2018 will be taking place on the 6th February 2018
Children at Etz Chaim Jewish Primary School use the Internet on a regular basis as part of their creative learning. In school, we have regular 'e-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 content (both good and bad) and bring them virtually into their homes.
Here are some tips and useful links to help you keep your children safe online:
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.
Treat your password like a tooth brush- Talk to your child and make sure they do not share their password with anyone.
