Safer Internet

This page provides information which will help you and your children stay safe online at school and at home. 

 

Children at Manor Fields use the Internet on a regular basis as part of their learning.  Technology enhances learning and we want to ensure pupils get the most from it by encouraging responsible online behaviour.  In school, we use a filtering system which prevents children accessing inappropriate sites. 

We teach online safety to year groups 1-6 as part of their Computing curriculum and  through their everyday use of InformationTechnology. 

At home, sometimes children can be given unsupervised access to the Internet. This potentially allows them to access all kinds of sites, both age-appropriate andinappropriate.

We would encourage all parents/carers to talk about internet safety with their children.
