Online Safety Advice for Parents from NSPCC

 Dear Families,

We know that keeping children safe online is of vital importance to yourself as much as it is to us as a school. Digital technologies have become integral to the lives of us all and especially to children, both within and outside school. All children are entitled to be safe whenever they access the internet and at Barley Croft Primary School we take active steps to embed online safety in our curriculum and children’s learning. We also want to help parents and carers improve their own understanding of online safety, so that they can support their children to use the Internet and digital media in a safe and responsible way.

With that in mind we are going to be sending out each Wednesday, via ParentMail, a weekly online safety newsletter called #WakeUpWednesday which will give you specific information about what to look out for when using a particular aspect of digital technology and how to support children to be safe when using it themselves.


13/09/2023 - Please find attached a ‘live-streaming’ guide which explains the hazards and precautions to take to help young people when accessing online live streaming services.


30/08/2023 - Welcome back to a new school year ! We know that looking after children’s wellbeing is something we all work hard to achieve and this week’s free online safety guide has tips for looking after children’s wellbeing when being online – including going tech free before bed, avoiding comparisons with others, and pausing before they post. 


We are pleased to share the news that we recently had a successful safeguarding audit of our school. As a result of the findings from the audit we do kindly request that parents do not use mobile phones on-site when dropping off or picking up their children as this helps to keep all children safe on our school site. Staff may talk to you about this as necessary.
