E-Safety

Welcome to our eSafety Page

 

Please read below for information on all areas of eSafety.

 

The internet is a great resource for children of all ages - a place for education and recreation. The pupils here at Pennoweth School are encouraged to use the internet but in a safe manor, we feel education is the key when it comes to using the internet wisely, especially when using the internet for recreation.

We encourage parents to set up Parental Controls and Content Filtering on their home internet. To learn how to do this for the major providers of internet please click the link below:

Social networking can be a worry for parents. We suggest parents visit the website link below for up to date information on Facebook privacy settings, as whilst we know that no children under the age of 13 should have a Facebook account, if they are able to access the site we feel its best we educate them to ensure they use it safely.

Facebook privacy and antibullying information

In addition, there are child friendly websites  which contain a series of puzzles and games that give important messages about how to use computers and the Internet safely:
