Internet Safety

Hello and Welcome to the E-Safety section of the school website.  On this page we will feature news and advice about keeping your child, and sometimes yourself, safe whilst online.  E-Safety is growing in importance everyday as we become more connected with friends, family and the online global community.   The internet has a great deal of wonderful and useful pages to explore. Most of us would be lost without the ability to 'google' facts and information.  Your child's homework projects would be more time consuming and some more daunting without the information that we can find online.  Unfortunately, with all the good that we can do and find, there are also many potential hazards.  The things that we advise the children to do to stay safe online can also be adopted by adults. We are going to work with all of the children  to help them to become 'Digital Citizens', build their online resilience and help them to make good choices, both on and offline.

We cannot, of course, do this without parental support.  On this page you will find useful websites to help tackle issues which you and your child are confronted with.  These websites also contain advice guides to Social Media, games and setting privacy controls on a range of devices.  If you have any questions or would like any help or advice from school, please contact Mrs Dyde at nicola.dyde@hungerfordacademy.orgThere is also a post box for the children to drop any notes or queries into, this is located by the Junior Staffroom.

 Please find below some information sent to us by the police safer schools lead.
 
Police in Cheshire are advising parents to be vigilant following a suspicious incident.
A family received a phone call from a man purporting to be giving tutoring sessions on behalf of the local primary school and that he would be doing extra maths tuition with the girl, which he named .
On enquiry with the school they had not made any arrangements for out of school tutoring and the matter was reported to police.
PC Liz Stanton from the Safer Schools & Young Persons Partnership said: “The man named the girl which leads us to speculate that she may have revealed personal information on social media. I would advise parents to be vigilant and to confirm with the school your children go to any out of hours tuition .
“I’d also ask you remind children that it is important not to put personal details  on social media.”
 
Protect yourself online:
·        Only accept friend requests and other types of communication from people who you know and trust.
·        Adjust your privacy settings so that you are in control of your profile and you know who is able to view it.
·        Be aware that Facebook, Twitter and other forms of social media usually have some form of age restriction; Facebook for example is 13 years and upwards.
·        If you are unfortunate enough to become a victim of online bullying, be sure to block the communications from the person sending them to you and report them to the site administrators.
 
Advice for parents:
·        Try to put the computer in an easy to see place in the home so that you can monitor what sites your child is visiting
·        Check out the websites your child is using, just like you’d check out a school or a youth group they might visit. Have a look and make a judgement whether you think it is a safe environment for them to be involved in.
·        Set up reasonable guidelines and limits for internet usage. Understand that it may be a big part of their life but that it needs to be regulated
·        Explain to your children why it is important for them never to give out personal details or post pictures of themselves publicly, just like you would when you explain to them not to talk to strangers
