Online safety parents' zone
The internet has become a part of our everyday lives. We use it daily as a tool to improve teaching and learning, to access information from around the world, to talk to friends and to help with our work. It is an immense environment offering a wealth of resources that benefit us all.
However, it is essential that we all learn how to behave responsibly online both at home and at school. At Charlton Wood Primary Academy we take this matter very seriously, following government advice on best practice. All children across the school are taught Online Safety termly and we also take part in the national Safer Internet Day in February each year.
Every child in school should expect parents to put settings on their devices – for more help with parental controls for your home broadband and devices click here.
