Online Safety @ St. Andrew’s

At St. Andrew’s, we take the health and safety of our children very seriously. On this page, there is information and videos about online safety for children and parents. The videos are organised into the age ranges suggested by the UK police. The content on this page is intended to work alongside the e-safety learning and safeguarding that takes place in classrooms and at home.

What To Do If You Don’t Feel Safe Online

Inappropriate behaviour can include:

  • Talking about rude things or using rude words
  • Asking you to send them photos of yourself
  • Wanting to know where you live/go to school
  • Asking you to meet up with them

If you think somebody has behaved inappropriately, please tell a teacher or an adult that you trust.

This video is part of the NSPCC #talkpants campaign, aimed at educating children about what is and isn’t appropriate. For more information from the NSPCC (including what the PANTS rule is) click here

Online Safety Posters

A collection of posters created by our children to raise awareness of being safe online.

On the 7th February, the whole school took part in the national Safer Internet Day 2017. The slogan of this years campaign was ‘Be the change: Unite for a better internet’. All schools around the country took part with the day offering the opportunity to highlight positive uses of technology and to explore the role we all play in helping to create a better and safer online community.
To continue with this e-safety focus, the children were set online safety homework which required them to create an online safety poster highlighting how to stay safe while online.
One winner was chosen from each class for showing fantastic effort and capturing the importance of online safety and showing this in an exciting and engaging way. Here are the winners of our online safety homework competition.

Guidance For Children Aged 5-7

Hector’s World is a cartoon created in Australia that is often used by police in the UK to introduce the topic of E-Safety. Whilst we are aware that many children under 7 will not be online unaccompanied, we of course want to make sure that our children are prepared and aware of internet basics.

Guidance For Children Aged 8+

These videos are also form national campaigns to promote e-safety. We advise parents to watch these before showing their children, so that you are aware of the content; especially as these videos begin to highlight some of the very real dangers of being online.
