At Claydon Primary School we understand the responsibility to educate our pupils on online safety issues; teaching them the appropriate behaviours and critical thinking skills to enable them to remain both safe and legal when using the Internet and related technologies, in and beyond the context of the classroom.
At School, we will:
- Only provide access to the internet with adult supervision
- Employ a strict filtering system that restricts access to inappropriate materials
- Teach half termly online safety lessons, with its themes regularly revisited to help pupils remember and articulate their learning
- Ask pupils to sign our school’s acceptable use policy so that we know they have read and understood our rules on staying safe online
- Link to online safety policy
As a school, we appreciate the complexity of managing the online risks our pupils face. Please find examples of our pupils' online safety learning along with a range of support materials which are aimed at supporting parents to keep their children safe when using the internet.

Internet Matters have developed a personalised online safety toolkit parents can use at home. By answering a few simple questions, you can get age-specific advice, learn about popular apps, get information on how to deal with any concerns and also have tools to support your children’s interests and wellbeing.
If your child is eager to start tweeting, posting or sharing but you feel they’re not ready to use the likes of Facebook or Instagram, then there are a number of alternative social networks made for children that you can point them to.
This guide maps some of the most common apps available and highlights those that might create risky situations for children, such as unintentionally revealing personal information, stranger danger and generating large bills through in-app purchasing.
It also features advice on apps that can be used to improve children learning and wellbeing to help them get the best experience out of the online world.
