 Norbert the Alien – Online Safety Workshop

We recently had a visit from the Online Safety Officer from Northamptonshire County Council. The children met Norbert the Alien who gave them lots of top tips for keeping children safe while online. Thank you to the parents who also attended the workshop and found it very useful and insightful to ensure that your children are safe online. For those of you who weren’t able to make the workshop, here are some of the key facts from the session.

  • The average age of an online gamer is 34
  • 74% of gaming is made up by adults
  • 74% of free mobile apps sell on our personal information, this includes social media and Tik Tock  
  • 1 in 3 child sexual offences now starts online in Northamptonshire
  • 90% of 12 – 16 year olds in the UK believe their parents don’t follow their own rules on screen time   

Some very worrying statistics and if you have any concerns about your child’s online activity, please don’t hesitate to speak to Mrs Dell our Online Safety Lead.

Please find some information below from Simon Aston with some top tips and advice.

Online Safety – Letter to parents

 

Online Safety at Pineham Barns

As we kick off the start of a new school year, let us remember how to keep ourselves safe online. To ensure your children are safe online please have regular discussions about online safety. As a School we use Online Safety Logos, each logo represents one of our Online Safety Rules.

You can remind them of the Online Safety Rules we use at school to help keep safe online: Safe, Pop, Tell, Ask, Accept, ask your child if they can explain them to you.

Goldilocks: A fairytale for the digital age

Another way to talk to your child about staying safe online, especially using social media responsibility, Vodafone have produced a new version of Goldilocks, written by Jeanne Willis. ‘The book is a modern twist on the classic fairy tale and offers a fun and accessible way for parents to discuss responsible social media use with their younger children.’

It can be downloaded for free at: https://www.vodafone.co.uk/mobile/digital-parenting/goldilocks or by scanning this QR code:

As part of our work to support online safety, we would like to highlight the link below to parents.  This quiz from O2 and the NSPCC is a fantastic, fun way for families to have conversations about staying safe online. It can be played on phones, tablets, laptops and even Amazon Alexa, and aims to: ‘get families talking about the exciting possibilities of the internet, as well as the risks to look out for.’
