The internet is a fantastic resource, but it can also bring risks. At Parkstone we take the issue of Internet Safety very seriously and on these pages you will find information that will provide further support for you at home.
In school, through PSHE lessons and the Key Stage 3 Computing curriculum, we work with our pupils to help them understand the dangers and learn how to keep themselves safe online. All pupils are asked to sign a copy of our network usage agreement on how they will use the Internet in school. You can view a copy of this in your daughter’s student planner. There are also a number of other organisations which promote internet safety.
The Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre have an excellent website which provides a great of information about Internet safety. CEOP is the national law enforcement agency in the UK that tackles sexual abuse of children. Their logo is displayed on many social networking sites and clicking on the logo will take you directly to their website where you can follow further links for help if you are a parent or child.
