How to Report Online Safety Concerns:

If you are concerned about online safety issues regarding your child and would like to speak to someone at school, please speak to your child’s class teacher in the first instance. If you don’t feel you can speak to your child’s class teacher, please contact the school office to speak to the Mrs Weymouth.

If you think you may need to make a report to the Police about online abuse, please click on the logo below:

The NSPCC helpline is a place adults can contact by phone or online to get advice or share their concerns about a child, anonymously if they wish. It’s staffed by professional practitioners with backgrounds in jobs like teaching, healthcare and social work, who know how to spot the signs of abuse and what to do to help.

As parents/carers, you may wish to know more about keeping your child safe while using the internet.

We hope that you will find the following links to be useful:

The National Crime Agency’s CEOP Command has revised and updated the parents content on the Thinkuknow website – the new site offers a variety of articles and guidance on all aspects of child internet safety. There are also some fun games and video clips on the Thinkuknow site to help children learn about internet safety.

The ‘Know It All’ guide for parents offers a guide for parents about eSafety.

The ‘Kidsmart’ website’s ‘Skills Section’ offers useful advice on how to use the safety tools on certain services.

‘Common Sense Media’ offer some good internet filter tips too.

Vodafone’s ‘Digital Parenting’ magazine provides advice to parents on various digital issues, such as cyberbullying. It is available in paper copy and online via www.vodafone.com/parents .

At St Wilfrid’s we have a comprehensive Online Safety Policy and ensure that we teach the children in our care how to use technology responsibly and safely.

We are continuing to develop our online safety provision through the ‘360 Degree Safe’ tool.
