E-Safety Talk for SS Peter and Paul Catholic Primary School
Our Aims The main aim of this evening is to raise awareness of how children are using the internet and what we can all do to make the online environment a safer place.
Risks of using the internet People lying to others online Bullying using the internet (Cyber bulling) Seeing inappropriate images and material Viruses and pop ups Paedophiles use the internet to meet young people
Benefits of the internet Educational games and programmes Research information The opportunity to communicate with people from all around the world The opportunity to share resources and ideas with people that have the same interests Shopping around the world without leaving your computer
Mobile Technology Mobile Phones - Internet via mobile phone technology - Chat rooms and social networking sites wherever and whenever - Bluetooth technology to share music files and photos with friends - Ringtones can be downloaded from the internet straight to phones
Mobile Technology Wireless internet access - Internet access wherever there is a wireless signal - If security settings not set access is available to anyone in the vicinity - Broadband allows faster and cheaper internet access Staffordshire introducing new “filtering System” to protect children in our schools but as we’ve seen most Internet usage is at home – so educating our children is the only way forward.

The Internet in School & at Home In School Supervised Filtered Curriculum Monitored At Home 65% of homes have internet access. 56% have broadband. 19% of young people have internet access in their bedrooms. 53% of children said they were never or hardly ever supervised by their parents or carers when online. 81% of parents think they know what their children are doing all or most of the time when accessing the internet.
For those of you who are not using facebook … Question: What is Facebook? Facebook is a social networking website that is operated and privately owned by Facebook, Inc. Since September 2006, anyone over the age of 13 with a valid address (and not residing in one of the countries where it is banned) can become a Facebook user.
57% of people talk more on- line … … than they do in real life!
Please check your child’s privacy settings. Monday evening I found 12 children from our school on facebook. 1 was in year 4! (privacy settings secure) 11 were in year 5 & 6 Only 2 profiles of the 11 were private 2 were part private. The rest were open - to everyone
Please check your child’s privacy settings Please check your family’s privacy settings.

Safety Ideas Keep your computer / laptop in family areas for all to see. Agree a set of internet ‘house rules’ Ask them to teach you to use any applications. Know what your children are doing on line and who they are talking to. Help your children to understand that they should never give out personal details. Encourage your child to use an avatar character on social networking sites rather than their own photo. Help your child to understand that some people lie on line. s – never open s or attachments from people you don’t know.
Remember No amount of blocking or filtering software can completely protect your child from the Internet 24 hours a day. The best protection is keeping an open relationship with your child, and make sure you communicate with them, and they you. Even the most advanced software is not foolproof. Children can guess and find passwords, or even find a way to disable the program or get around it if they have the computer knowledge. School now has e-safety software in place which logs all internet activity in school and raises alerts if there are any concerns.

Zip it – block it - flag it
And finally … [Do not go home and unplug your computer.] Protecting your children means knowing what they are doing online. Learn how your child uses the Internet. Parents can be slower to embrace new technologies – so why not get your child to teach or show you. Remember the Internet provides our children with a fantastic resource – we want them to use the Internet but we also want them to know how to remain safe whilst using it.
