E- safety

 

Children at Biddick Primary and Nursery School regularly access the Internet as part of their learning. Using technology safely

is an integral part of their education. In each year group regular e-safety lessons are timetabled to remind children of the

importance of staying safe online. In addition, each year Biddick Primary takes part in Safer Internet Day.

Hector's World

Each laptop in school has a 'Hector the Dolphin' safety button permanently 'swimming' on the screen.

Children are taught to click on Hector if they ever come across something online that they don't like or aren't sure about.  

Hector appears in a number of online cartoons which teach children to use the internet safely.

To view these cartoons, or install the Hector safety button at home, click on Hector.


 

Tips for staying e-safe at home:

 

Explore e-safety sites - There are lots of links to useful e-safety sites for parents and children (see below). They are great fun to

explore, so why not browse through them together?

Facebook / Bebo / Myspace - Most of these sites have a minimum age limit of 13, so BPNS pupils should NOT be using them.

They do not offer the same levels of protection as child-friendly sites, such as Superclubs or Swiggles, and may allow your child to

communicate with anyone.

Keep your computer in a shared area - Talk to your child about what they are doing online and, if possible, set up your computer

in an area at home where the whole family can share in the wonderful websites available.

Monitor mobile devices- remember your child can access the internet through any phone, tablet or web enabled device you have,

so make sure parental controls are installed and that you monitor their use in the same way you would a computer.
