Moorside Community Primary School

Online Safety

To ensure that as a school we are adhering to Ofsted and Dfe Statutory Safeguarding Guidelines regarding Online Safety we have signed up to the National Online  Safety (NOS) Certified Community Package.

This will enable us to protect and educate the whole school community in their use of technology and establishes mechanisms to identify, intervene in and escalate any incidents where appropriate.   

Staff will receive regular updated Safeguarding training including Online safety training and children will be taught about Safeguarding including Online safety throughout the school year at an age appropriate level.

Guidance for parents are available on the following pages. Any alerts from NOS regarding Online safety will be communicated to parents as they arise. If parents/carers require any additional advice/support regarding Online safety please do not hesitate to contact school for assistance.   

CEOP have been releasing #OnlineSafetyAtHome activity packs for parents and carers to use with children and young people of different ages.  Access the packs here.  CEOP have also created a short video which provides parents and carers with advice on how they can keep their child safe online, including a helpful tool to support them in having the right conversations about online safety.
