Safeguarding and Online Learning:

I want to remind you of how to keep your child safe whilst working online, this is of paramount importance.  We will only be using Teams to communicate with your child, which is a safe space for teachers and children to communicate.  The work shared with the children is from trusted websites.  Please see our Remote Learning Policy for information on our online offer.  If you have any concerns about the content being offered, please report them immediately to the class teacher.

As a word of caution, if you are choosing to supplement the school’s offer with support from online companies and in some cases individual tutors, please ensure that you use reputable organisation/individual who can provide evidence that they are safe and can be trusted to have access to children.

Here are some websites which offer advice and support with safe online learning:

  • Internet matters - for support for parents and carers to keep their children safe online
  • London Grid for Learning - for support for parents and carers to keep their children safe online

We encourage you to set age-appropriate parental controls on digital devices and use internet filters to block malicious websites.  These are usually free, but often need to be turned on.  Please read this poster from LGFL which provides some top tips for parents on internet safety.

In the event that you have a safeguarding concern whilst online, please report this to the class teacher in the first instance.  We would also like to signpost you to some websites, which offer age appropriate practical support:
