The Coronavirus pandemic has led to us all relying on technology so much more. With Christmas around the corner - and perhaps some new devices under the tree this year - it’s never been more important to keep children safe online.
Please refer to our E-Safety and Home Learning page to find out how to keep your children safe this winter and beyond. You will find links to websites from organisations like the NSPCC, Parent Zone and Net-Aware, who are all experts in the field of online safety.
The page is regularly updated as the challenges of online safety change. Scroll to the bottom to see the latest updates for this term, including a recent BBC documentary about Tik-Tok, advice for staying safe when learning from home and a guide for helping parents and carers to better understand social media.
4 letters have been added to our Letters Home page this week.
Please follow the link to view or download the letters. Letters include important information about remote learning and online safety, updates from Councillor Ian Ward about remote learning, updates from Vicky Ford MP about early years testing, and information on emergency and ongoing help from Birmingham Children’s Partnership.
Please also visit our Remote Learning page for the latest information for parents and carers about remote learning. As well as the latest information for parents on remote learning, you will find a Remote Learning Help Hub, which is a space for children, parents and carers to view guides and find advice on a range of topics. For example, there are links, documents and presentations showing some of the ways children can use BGFL 365 to upload work and interact with their teachers and top tips for staying safe and well online.
Please see attached letter.
It is increasingly important that schools, parents and carers work together to take an active role in teaching children about online dangers. Learning how to act safely when using the internet is an incredibly important part of safeguarding our children.
We are therefore delighted to announce that Kitwell Primary School have shown our commitment to protecting our pupils online by working with National Online Safety - providing resources for all parents and carers.
