COVID-19 Online Safety
With many of our children currently off school and staying home due to COVID-19, the potential for online exploitation will be at its highest. We ask that all parents are vigilant around their child's internet access through computers, tablets and gaming consoles.
At the bottom of this page you can find some downloadable information posters promoting online safety for Xbox users, Playstation gamers, Minecraft users, Zoom and other online games.
Access to the Internet
Access to the Internet is a necessary tool for all staff and students irrespective of gender, race, religion, culture or ability. It is an entitlement for students who show a responsible and mature approach with the intention to gain useful or entertaining resources.
The purpose of internet access in school is to raise educational standards, to support the professional work of the staff and to enhance the schools management information and business administration system. Access to the internet is a necessary tool for all staff and children.
At Kippax Ash Tree Primary School, it is part of our role to educate children how to stay safe. All children in school regularly look at ways of ensuring that they understand the risks of using the internet and how to keep themselves safe through ICT lessons and the PSHE curriculum lessons.
CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection command) helps keep children and young people safe from sexual abuse and grooming online. They help thousands of children and young people every year, as well as their parents and carers who have been in a similar situations.
CEOP are there to help and give advice, and you can make a report directly to them if something has happened to your child online which has made either you or your child feel unsafe, scared or worried. This might be from someone they know in real life, or someone they have only ever met online.
