Online-Safety is an important part of keeping children safe at Tunstall Primary School.
We have extensive security measures in place in school to help safeguard pupils from potential dangers or unsuitable material. Any online-Safety incidents are recorded and managed in accordance with our online-Safety Policy. Online-Safety is taught to all pupils explaining and demonstrating how to stay safe and behave appropriately online.
We can only be successful in keeping children safe online if we work with parents to ensure the online-Safety message is consistent. It is important that parents speak to their children about how they can keep safe and behave appropriately online.
It’s essential to be realistic - banning the internet or technology will not work and it often makes a child less likely to report a problem. Education around safe use is essential.
