Internet Safety

Early use of digital technology has been shown to improve children’s language skills and promote their social development and creativity. However, it’s not without risks for children, who may come across inappropriate content or begin to copy what others do online. Are you clear what your child can and can’t do online, have you agreed boundaries and installed parental controls on your home broadband and any internet-enabled devices? If you’re not sure what to do, feel that the children know more than you or would just like to be more informed, make sure you come to our ‘E-Safety for Parents Evening’ on Monday 3 April at 5.30 pm. This will be a lively and entertaining presentation that covers all aspects of on-line risk and personal safety, including cyber-bullying, gaming and the use of social media such as Facebook and Instagram. You will receive practical advice and guides that you can use straight away to keep your children safe online. The session will be presented by Brett Laniosh, an experienced ICT Consultant, who has trained staff and children at Greenfield in addition to working with schools throughout the country. We do hope that you will all do your best to attend.
