Internet Safety @ Bishop Gore
Bishop Gore School takes Internet Safety very seriously and our pupils are educated on the subject through PSHE lessons, assemblies, and Coding lessons through the school year.
As the use of digital technology outside of the school as increased tenfold, we are aware that parents and carers may need some guidance on how to keep children safe when using the internet.
There are many resources online that can provide help and guidance. These include:
If you are worried about your child and their use of the internet then the Report Harmful Content website (funded by the Welsh assembly Government) can be used to report many types of incidents. It can be used by parents, carers and young people.
Other useful websites:
You can also report incidents to the Child Exploitation and Online Protection command (CEOP).
In addition, if your child is experiencing online bullying then Childline website provides good advice on what to do next as well as live support if needed.
Many activity packs have been created for parents and carers to use to help children understand the dangers of using the internet and how to avoid them. These can be accessed through the Thinkyouknow website.
There are worksheets available for different age groups and there is a parent and carer help sheet that includes further information on internet safety.
These activity packs are changed on a regular basis.
