Online Protection – CEOP

E-SAFETY FOR PARENTS

It is important that our students learn about how to stay safe online and that is why it is part of the Computing curriculum studied in Year 7. Students are given refresher lessons in Year 8 and 9.
However, it is also important that parents and carers have the right information so that they can spot any issues that might arise at home.

The internet is a wonderful resource for pupils because information is easily accessible. They can use it to research; to communicate; and to play interactive games.
However, it is very important to be aware that any information shared on the  internet leaves a permanent footprint. Moreover, when communicating, all users have to remember that the true identity of the person with whom they are communicating may not be who they say they are.

Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) have written various guides for parents and carers. A summary of the key points are: do not give out personal information; keep your full name, address, mobile number, email address, school name and friends’ full names secret, to prevent strangers using this information; keep passwords and usernames secret; never use your full name as a login; make passwords difficult to guess, do not use names or dates of birth of family members. CEOP make the important point that messages sent from mobiles have the phone number attached to them. It is important to think about what is sent, especially if photographs are attached.
