At Hinchliffe Mill we take online safety seriously. We no longer live in a world in which a family has one shared computer in the house, that can easily be monitored by parents, however we recommend that children of primary school age are monitored by an adult whenever they are online.
Social Network Sites have become increasingly popular amongst both the adult population and young people. However, many sites do have age-restriction policies where the minimum acceptable age is 13 years. Any child who sets up or uses such a site and is below the acceptable age is in clear breach of these age-restriction policies and therefore we actively discourage this in our school.
In order to keep children safe on the web we need to teach them to take some responsibility for their own safety, in much the same way previous generations of children were taught to take responsibility for crossing the road safely.
Here are some useful pointers. Why not discuss these with your child to see how many of them they are familiar with?
