Online Safety at Ashbrook Infant & Nursery School
At Ashbrook Infant and Nursery School we work with governors, staff, pupils, parents and carers to create an environment that embraces new technologies and recognises their value in enhancing learning. We take E-Safety very seriously and encourage responsible use of ICT and mobile technology and follow agreed policies to minimise potential e-safety risks.
This page is updated regularly to inform parents about Online Safety and to provide links to resources and guidance that may be useful.
In school children are taught how to keep safe online in an age appropriate way. This can continue at home with the help of the following websites which offer advice and guidelines for parents.
Traci also let us know about the useful website 'taminggaming.com' where you can search for age appropriate apps and games. This supports you in making decisions about which elements of the online world are suitable for your family.
At Ashbrook we recommend and use https://www.kiddle.co/ a child safe search engine.
Kiddle is a kid safe, visual search engine. Kiddle search results are either handpicked and checked by editors or filtered by Google safe search ensuring child appropriate results without any explicit content.
Having open conversations with your child about the online world is crucial. The Share Aware website has some useful video clips and suggestions that you may find useful to ensure the whole family is kept safe:
