Online Safety at Littleport Community Primary School
The internet is a fantastic place overflowing with knowledge, games and communities of people, and, just like pupils across the country, the pupils here at Littleport Community Primary School spend a great deal of time using the internet within school and at home. This is why it is important pupils at LCPS learn how to be safe when browsing online and becoming members of online communities.
One way to make browsing the internet safer at home is to use a 'safe search' search engine. We have a list of safe search engines on our search page. Click 'Safe Search' below to visit this page:
We also encourage parents to set up filtering on their home internet. To learn how to do this for the major providers of internet please click the text below.
Setting up internet filtering and parental controls
We also suggest parents visit the website link below for up to date information on Facebook privacy settings, as whilst we know that no children under the age of 13 should be on Facebook, if they are then they should be educated as to how to ensure they are safe.
In school, children learn about online safety through a scheme of lessons along with assemblies and workshops with parents. We also encourage parents/carers to talk to their children about how to behave safety when online, to ensure pupils remain safe when browsing at home.
Our children know to report any inappropriate content, contact or conduct they encounter online to CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre) by visiting this page and clicking our report button below.
CEOP also has a great website of information regarding online safety for parents. Please click the link below to visit the page.
The websites below provide excellent clear guidance for children about online safety, so please click on the image and have a read: there are separate sites for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.
