eSafety Advice for Parents
In school the Hertfordshire Grid for Learning provides for a safe and secure online environment. Many parents and carers do seek advice on how they can help their children to 'Stay Safe' online outside of school. These websites provide comprehensive information about online safety and once parents and carers have a wider knowledge and understanding of the issues they can decide what is right for their family.
The internet is an exciting and fun place for adults and children to use and explore educationally and socially. The challenge for parents, carers and teachers is to make sure our children are aware and understand how to be safe when using the internet and related technologies.
Vodafone has produced a new magazine called ‘Digital Parenting' to help parents understand and get involved with their children's digital world. The magazine is very readable, informative and provides advice on a range of eSafety issues, such as location services, sexting, cyberbullying and illegal content.
To order a copy of the magazine, email email@example.com or visit their website:
Connecting with parents/carers and helping them to keep their children safe online is an important aspect of eSafety for all schools. This excellent resource can be downloaded and used by parents/carers to help raise awareness and bridge the gap that sometimes exists.
Computer Games and Your Kids - What every parent needs to know - February 2012
Schools are increasingly reporting the impact video gaming is having on children’s education, achievement, behaviour and sleep. To support schools with this challenging area and to help raise awareness your ICT Team participated in the Radio Verulam’s ‘Parents Show’. The programme focused on the need for parental engagement, appropriate boundaries and research about the effects of gaming on behaviour and sleep.
This is now available as a podcast and the link can be sent out to parents and carers.
