E-Safety at Green Dragon

Please can you make sure you continue monitoring your child’s use of the internet on the phone, lap tops or a PC. Also please can you make sure you check the age limit for apps and what children download. A great website that you can use is:

https://www.commonsensemedia.org/game-reviews

This gives the full details on permissions for parents to use. Thank you in for your support.

The CEOP – Children Exploitation and Online Protection – website is a direct link to the police if something online needs to be reported. The CEOP symbol can be found on many websites and can be clicked to follow the link.


 

 

 

The internet is a fantastic tool and used almost daily in our work, education and school lives. 

At Green Dragon, we aim to provide children with the skills needed to be safe online, how to identify possible dangers and where to go for help if needed, so that they can play games and chat with friends. 

Pupils are taught about copyright and respecting other people's information, images etc through discussion, modelling and activities. 

Pupils are aware of the impact of Cyberbullying and know how to seek help if they are affected by any form of online bullying. Pupils are also aware of where to seek advice or help if they experience problems when using the internet and related technologies. 

At Green Dragon pupils are taught to critically evaluate materials and learn good searching skills through cross-curricular teacher models, discussions and via the Computing curriculum.

  • Information for Children

    A lot of people enjoy accessing the Internet, but it is worth remembering to keep safe while in cyberspace. You might know a lot about the Internet but it is worth bearing a few things in mind.

    Many of us now enjoy access to the web via a computer at home, work, school or even on your mobile phone. It’s important to think about what kind of information you give out and keep to yourself in what you say and do.

    • Never give out any personal information such as your home address, phone number, or school to anyone you talk to online, even if you are offered free samples, gifts or information.
    •  If you have your own website or pages on social networking sites such as Facebook, MySpace or Bebo, remember that these are public sites and anyone can see them. So...
    1. Always think carefully about what you put on your site, especially photos. Instead of putting up a picture of yourself you could draw an image, or upload something a bit abstract to protect your identity.
    2. Remember that people who contact you may not be who they say they are. Anyone can say that they share your interests and are the same age… but not everyone is, as they seem.
    3. Never arrange a face-to-face meeting on your own with anyone you have met on the Internet. If they want to meet you, tell your parents/guardians and friends. If you still decide to go ahead and meet up, choose a busy public place and take someone with you.
    4. Do not respond to threatening or obscene messages. No matter how irritating or rude they are - tell your parents/guardians, block the individual and report them to the site and/or CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection).
    5. Be careful if you receive an email message from someone you don’t know. It could contain a virus at the very least, which can mess up your computer.

    This series of three animations aims to give 4-7 year olds knowledge, skills and confidence to help them respond safely to risks they may encounter online.

    Jessie & Friends is a series of three animations that follow the adventures of Jessie, Tia and Mo as they begin to navigate the online world, watching videos, sharing pictures and playing games. There’s also a storybook for each episode, to help you and your child keep the conversation going.

    The key message throughout Jessie and Friends is that if a child is ever worried by anything online, they should tell a grown-up they trust, who will help them.

    The animations and additional classroom activities give children great opportunities to learn about trust, being kind online, consent, and healthy and unhealthy behaviour on the internet.

    The aim of the films is to help 8-10 year olds learn how to stay safe online. In particular, the films teach them to spot the early signs of manipulative, pressurising and threatening behaviour by people they might meet online, and develops their confidence to respond safely and get help.

  • SOCIAL NETWORKS

    Children under 13 should not have a Facebook account. Any child who has an account under this age who has changed their date of birth to set it up can be reported by the school. Befriending people on Facebook is not a safe thing for young children to do, you would not want your child befriending adults in the ‘real world’ and you should apply the same logic to the digital world. If your child has a Facebook account we strongly recommend that you close it down immediately and wait until they are an appropriate age. This should apply to all social media and texting etc. Keep your child safe. You do not let them go out into the ‘real world’ without you so do not let them navigate the digital world on their own either.  

  • CYBER-BULLYING

    Cyberbullying (also called 'online bullying') is when a person or a group of people uses the internet, email, online games or any other kind of digital technology to threaten, tease, upset or humiliate someone else.

    This book, 'Digiduck's BIG Decision' is to share with younger children has been provided by Childnet. (See below)
