Children at Tower Primary School & Nursery use the Internet on a regular basis as part of their learning. Technology enhances learning, and we at Tower want to ensure pupils get the most from it, by encouraging responsible online behaviour.
In school, we use a filtering system to prevent children accessing inappropriate sites. We also 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 society (both good and bad) and bring them virtually into their homes.
Here at Tower Primary School we hosted a Cyber Safety Workshop on 14th and 19th January 2015
Here are some of the comments our parents made:
I thought it was brilliant. It reassured me that I am doing ok and I learnt a few things I didn’t know.
It was very useful and interesting. I have now set up parental controls on BT! I’ve been putting it off because I thought it was going to be so complicated but it was easy.
Growing up Online Workshop Thursday 1st October 2015:
These are some of the responses from our parents:
I thought the workshop was very interesting and helpful and I am going to be able to help my kids understand the internet better. P.S thanks
Very informative. I didn’t know a lot of it and will now put it into work at home. And talk to my kids more and the internet. Very helpful. Thank you.
Very informative. I will be using the tools suggested for parental control.
Very positive “lesson” about the internet and a good teacher.
