As a parent or carer it can be difficult to monitor what your child is up to online. Most parents and carers trust their children online, but it can be easy for a child to stumble across things that might upset or disturb them.
Filtering and moderation packages are a good way to stop the majority of inappropriate and harmful content coming into your home. They are a tool to help you set and change online boundaries in line with your child’s development.
There are some great packages out there, some are free and some come at a cost. Make sure you get one that suits your family’s needs and budget. For advice specifically for parents of primary aged children go to our links page for more information.
Thornbury E-Safety Committee
The Thornbury E-Safety Committee is made up of representation from all year groups in the school. They meet at least termly to discuss issues and think of ways to promote e-safety in our school, tackling issues that they feel are relevant to them. In their first few meetings they have signed their own e-safety pledge and created an informative poster with general e-safety advice.
