Internet Safety Information for Parents:

Welcome to our Peover Superior Primary school's webpage dedicated to E-safety and our partnership with the local Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs)

E-safety at Our School

At Peover Superior Primary, we understand the importance of keeping our students safe in the digital world. As technology continues to evolve, it's crucial to equip our young learners with the knowledge and skills to navigate the online landscape responsibly. Our commitment to E-safety is reflected in various aspects of our curriculum and extracurricular activities.

What is E-safety?

E-safety, or electronic safety, refers to the practice of staying safe while using digital devices and platforms, such as computers, tablets, smartphones, and the internet. It encompasses understanding online risks, protecting personal information, and maintaining positive digital citizenship.

Our Approach to E-safety

  • Curriculum Integration: E-safety is integrated into our curriculum across various subjects and grade levels. Through age-appropriate lessons and activities, we educate our students about online safety, cyberbullying, privacy protection, and responsible internet use.

  • Parental Involvement: We recognise the importance of collaboration between school and home in promoting E-safety. We regularly engage parents and guardians through workshops, seminars, and informational sessions to provide guidance on monitoring and supporting their child's online activities.

  • Children Empowerment: We empower our children to become responsible digital citizens through discussions, role-playing scenarios, and interactive workshops. By fostering critical thinking skills and promoting empathy, we help them make informed decisions and navigate online challenges effectively.

Partnership with Local PCSOs

At Peover Superior Primary we are proud to partner with our local Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) to enhance E-safety awareness and promote community safety. Our PCSOs regularly visit our school to engage with students, staff, and parents on various aspects of online safety and cybercrime prevention.

Key Initiatives with PCSOs:

  • Interactive Workshops: Our PCSOs conduct interactive workshops and presentations tailored to different age groups, covering topics such as social media safety, online gaming risks, and reporting cyberbullying incidents.

  • Q&A Sessions: All chilren have the opportunity to ask questions and seek advice from PCSOs regarding E-safety concerns or experiences they've encountered online.

  • Parental Workshops: We organise joint workshops with PCSOs to educate parents about emerging online threats, privacy settings, parental controls, and resources available for supporting their child's E-safety at home.

Reporting Concerns:

We encourage our children, parents, and staff to report any E-safety concerns or incidents promptly. Whether it's cyberbullying, inappropriate content, or online harassment, our school and PCSOs are here to support and guide you through the appropriate channels for resolution.

Top tips for staying safe online

  • Remember that everyone you meet online is a stranger, even though they might seem like a friend.
  • Always give out a nickname when you log on and never give out any details that would allow someone you meet online to contact you.  This includes your full name, home or school address, email address and phone numbers.
  • If you publish a picture of yourself online, remember anyone can change it or share it, or use it to try and contact you.
  • Never arrange to meet up alone with anyone you make friends with online, but if you are going to make sure you take an adult you trust and meet in a public place.
  • Accepting emails or opening files from people that you don’t really know can get you into trouble – they may contain viruses or nasty messages.
  • Talk to an adult you know well and ask for help if you are upset or worried about anything you have been sent online.
  • Parent information about Apps and Social Media (see files below for information on this)
