Online Safety

At Stoke Park, we are committed to ensuring that all our children are aware of how to behave responsibly online. We teach online safety through our computing curriculum and also regularly throughout the year during PSHE lessons and assemblies.

We know that as a parent it can be hard to know how to talk to your children about online safety. Please follow the link below for some useful tips from the NSPCC

The following websites are really helpful in supporting parents to help keep their children safe online.

Net Aware

Net Aware gives guidelines on social media, apps and games that children may be accessing. It gives Top tips for staying safe whilst using them, and what risks and benefits there may be to using them.
