E Safety Workshops

Inspire to achieve; persevere to succeed.

 

At Gascoigne Primary, we are always keen to ensure the happiness and safety of our children and this includes on the internet. Therefore, we invited our parents for two E-safety workshops led by Computing Champions on Tuesday 19th April and Tuesday 3rd May 2016.

 

The sessions covered:

  • Outline dangers of various technologies, especially those in the home
  • Discuss how to keep themselves and their children safe online
  • Provide practical steps to help educate their children and prevent access to unsuitable content
  • Present appropriate use of social networking sites (Facebook, Twitter, etc)

Safer Internet day

 

Our school joined the global celebration on 9th February! The theme for this year was Play your part for a better internet! Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre the celebration sees hundreds of organisations get involved to help promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.

 

The UK Safer Internet Centre – a partnership of three leading charities; Childnet, the South West Grid for Learning and the Internet Watch Foundation – provide resources for children, schools and families, and tools for getting involved at www.saferinternet.org.uk.

 

The day offered the opportunity to highlight positive uses of technology and explored the role we all play in helping to create a better and safer online community.

Cyber Bullying

What is Cyber Bullying?

 

Cyber bullying (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.

 

How can I ensure my child is not involved in cyber bullying?

 

Monitor what your child is doing online or on their phones.

 

Talk to your child about the responsibility they have online.

 

Look at the e-safety rules with your child.

 

Do not allow your child to have a facebook account - this is illegal before the age of 13... watch the video from CEOP to learn about why not!

 

Watch the video below with your child and talk to them about the impact of cyber bullying.

 

Make your child aware that cyber bullying is a criminal offence and the police could be called if they are involved in cyber bullying.

 

Cyber Bullying - some facts.

 

  • 90% of young victims do not inform adults of online bullying issues
  • Girls are twice as likely to experience cyberbullying
  • Over 40% of all UK secondary school children have been bullied online and one in four have suffered repeated incidents
  • Over 80% of children fear that cyberbullying is increasing and getting worse
  • Cyberbullying can lead to depression, low self-esteem, low self-confidence, self-harming, social isolation and, in the worst cases, suicide
  • Cyberbullying costs the UK education budget over £18 million per year

 

Cyber Bullying is not tolerated at Gascoigne

 

We take any alleged incidents of cyber bullying very seriously and the SLT will be informed.

 

Parents will also be involved and the pupil will hit RED on our consequence system.
