Online Safety

Welcome to our Online Safety Page!

 

 

Online safety.

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 manner, we feel education is the key when it comes to using the internet wisely, especially when using the internet for recreation.

The school teach internet safety as a part of the computing curriculum using a resource called Gooseberry Planet. 

The school use a robust filtering system and 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.

Children can also use https://www.kiddle.co/ as an alternative to google when searching the internet.

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.
