E Safety

Welcome to the E-Safety page!

 

Here you will find useful resources to support your child at home.

E-Safety Day 2017 is on Tuesday 7th February.

 

Each year group will take part in a different activity helping them to understand how to keep safe online.  

 

On the day we will be sending home an e-safety leaflet on how you can support your child at home. There is also several links below of websites to help and links to different e-safety leaflets.

Snapchat

As some of you may be aware, Snapchat have recently added a new feature.  You can now share your location with others and it will show this location on a map, 'Snap Map'.  Obviously this is very concerning especially as so many young people use this app and may not be aware of the risks.

 

How to switch off Snap Map location sharing

  • When in photo-taking mode, pinch the screen to open Snap Map
  • Touch the settings cog in the top right corner of the screen
  • Tap "Ghost Mode" to switch off location sharing
  • Photos and videos posted to Snapchat's public 'Our Story' will still be discoverable on the map 

 

Here are some links to help you understand the new feature and some of the risks involved. Click on the pictures below.   Please ensure you keep your children safe!

Here is another link for you to keep up to date with keeping children safe online, particularly with social media, and especially as over the holidays children will want to keep in touch with their friends.  There is a short video which encourages the children to stay safe online and to tell an adult especially when they've been upset. Think before you post!
