Online Safety

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 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)

Smartphones and Other Devices

Children are using devices at a younger age so it’s important to consider setting controls on their tech, or on any devices that you are letting them borrow from you. We’ve pulled together a number of guides to give you simple steps to set controls on a range of devices.
