Online safety at Hunslet Moor Primary

With the growth of social media and on-line gaming, internet safety is becoming more and more important. Children can be subject to bullying or be vulnerable to sharing personal information when they are on-line. It is vital that children are made aware of how to deal with any concerns they come across when using the internet and how to keep themselves safe.
At Hunslet Moor, your child’s safety is very important to us. Because of this, we make sure that we thoroughly cover safety online in our computing curriculum. Children have half-termly online safety lessons where they learn how to be safe on-line, how to report anything that concerns them and how to be respectful on the internet. We also have a strong focus on cyber-bullying and how to report this.
For further information of how we do this, please see our .
In line with the new national curriculum, by the end of year 2, we will have taught children to:

“use technology safely and respectfully, keeping personal information private; identify where to go for help and support when they have concerns about content or contact on the internet or other on-line technologies”

And by the end of year 6 to:

“use technology safely, respectfully and responsibly; recognise acceptable/unacceptable behaviour; identify a range of ways to report concerns about content and contact”

It is also really important that parents are aware of how to keep children safe on-line. The CEOP, a government body aimed at educating children and parents about dangers on-line have developed a website to help parents understand how to help their children stay safe on-line Click here to visit the site.

We have created our own leaflet on how to support you and your family stay safe online: Online Safety – Guide for Parents and also collected together some on-line safety information leaflets for parents. Please click on the links below to download them:

We also have information in different languages:

And some information for foster parents and adoptive parents:
