The Internet has changed all of our lives, particularly our children’s, and for parents and carers this opens up a whole new world of things to be aware of, such as social media, forums, cyber-bullying and inappropriate websites.
At Liskeard Hillfort, we use Securus which is a specialist, online safety provider that is designed to accurately monitor, respond and safeguard the welfare and wellbeing of digital users. All devices used by children and adults are monitored using this system allowing us to ensure a safe, caring environment for children to learn.
E-safety is one of our key priorities for ensuring our children stay safe at school but they are also some useful resources and tips to help parents keep their child safe online.
Please take the time to access the information contained here on YouTube. It is becoming very popular with primary aged children. Whilst YouTube is an amazing resource sometimes you are only a click away from age-inappropriate material.
