Online Safety

Untitled 39

At Gwyn Jones, we recognise that children are increasingly using the internet and devices for their learning.  Keeping our children safe is our top priority but we understand that in this ever-changing world, staying up to date with the latest guidance can be mind-boggling!  We are here to support our children, parents/carers and the wider school community to stay safe online.  This area of the website will be regularly refreshed with the latest advice and tips to help you stay ahead of the game and keep your child safe at all times.  Please contact the school if you need any further support with online safety and also don't hesitate to let us know if you come across some new guidance that we could add to this area.

Resources to share with your child

ThinkUKnow have created a series of home activity packs containing simple 15 minute activities you can do with your family to support their online safety at home.  Check them out here:

'Home Rules' for keeping your child safe online.

  • Put and use the computer/device in a family room and not a bedroom, so that you can supervise what your child is accessing online;
  • Make it a rule for everyone to leave devices in a central location - not bedrooms - overnight;
  • Agree and manage the amount of time your child spends online and in front of a screen;
  • Regularly take an interest and discuss your child's online activities;
  • Mobile phones, games consoles and other devices often have internet access—check sites are age-appropriate and bookmark child friendly sites or search engines for your child to use;
  • Let your child know they can come to you if they encounter anything they are unhappy about;
  • If you have serious concerns report these to CEOP.
