Children at St John's School use the Internet on a regular basis as part of their learning. In school, we have regular 'e-safety' activities to remind children of the importance of keeping themselves safe online.
At home, many children are often given unsupervised access to the Internet. This, potentially, allows them to access all kinds of society (both good and bad) and bring them into their homes.
We believe that internet safety is a shared responsibility between the school and parents and we are committed to developing the link between home and school. Should you have any comments, we will be happy to discuss them with you further. Please see your child's class teacher about any ideas you have or any matters that you are concerned about.
On this page you will be able to explore e-safety sites - please look at the links below where you will find age appropriate content for you to look at with your child.

Simple rules for keeping your child safe.
To keep your child safe they should
ask before using the internet.
only use websites you have chosen together or use a child friendly search engine.
only email people they know ( why not consider setting up an address book for them?)
ask permission before opening an email from someone they don't know.
not use internet chat rooms.
not use their real names when using games on the internet ( use a nick name).
never give out home address, phone, mobile number or where they go to school.
never arrange to meet someone they have "met" on the internet.
only use a webcam with people they know.
tell you immediately if they see something they are unhappy with.
Did you know?
Many online games have their own chat rooms.
If your child plays on these and enters these chat rooms, do you really know to whom they are talking?
You can load software onto your computer which will alert you to anything inappropriate which your compter has accessed.
