Tik Tok Advice for Parents
We have heard lots of children discussing the popular APP TikTok, and it is clearly used by many children at home. Here is some advice guidelines for Parents.
The internet is a fantastic place overflowing with knowledge, games and communities of people, and just like pupils across the country, the pupils here at St. Annes spend a great deal of time using the internet within school and at home. This is why it is important pupils learn how to be safe when browsing online and becoming members of online communities.
One way to make browsing the internet safer at home is to use a 'safe search' search engine.
Below are links to search engines designed for children to use on the internet.
We also encourage parents to set up filtering on their home internet. To learn how to do this for the major providers of internet please click the text below.
In school, children learn about E-Safety through a scheme of lessons along with assemblies. We also encourage parents/carers to talk to their children about how to behave safety when online, to ensure pupils remain safe when browsing at home.
Our aim is to ensure that our children know to report any inappropriate content, contact or conduct they encounter online to CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre) and clicking the 'report' button.
CEOP also has a great website of information on E-Safety for parents. Please click the link below to visit the page.
The website provides excellent clear guidance for children about E-Safety, so please click on the following link and have a read: there are separate sites for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.
