E-Safety is an integral part of children's education in today's digital world and it is embedded in their learning at school.
Technology and the way in which our children engage with the internet is changing rapidly and we need to equip our young people for the changing demands that new technology brings.
E-Safety is an important part of keeping children safe at Henley Green Primary School. We teach our children how to use the internet safely and responsibly and encourage our parents and carers to support us in this.
February holds host to Safer Internet Day
Share some of the videos and stories below with your children to ignite conversations about being safe online. Keep a look out on this page to see how we celebrated Safer Internet Day at HG!
You may have seen media reports about a Netflix series called Squid Game which some children in school have been talking about. The show is rated 15.
Attached is a poster to explain how to alter your settings on Netflix so that children are not watching inappropriate content for their age. Please help us to keep your children safe.
We have also been notified that there is a Roblox version of Squid Games on YouTube and this is equally inappropriate for primary aged children.
Please monitor children's online activity at home to help keep them safe.
We have also been made aware of children accessing scary and inappropriate characters on YouTube - please consider checking your parental controls or using YouTube Kids
