Lowton West Primary School

Online Safety Information

Online Safety is very important. Children at Lowton West Primary use the Internet on a regular basis as part of their learning.  Technology enhances learning, and here at Lowton West we want to ensure pupils get the most from it, by encouraging responsible online behaviour. 

In school, we have a filtering system in place to ensure that inappropriate material is blocked whilst children are accessing the Internet. We also have ‘Impero’ software installed which helps us regularly monitor computer usage. 

The children are supervised whilst using the Internet and we ensure the children learn about Online Safety, online bullying and safe use of the Internet. We do this through planned lessons, Online Safety assemblies and themed weeks – such as our annual ‘Anti-bullying Week’ to remind children of the importance of keeping themselves safe online.

Children are made aware and reminded of our Online Safety rules regularly and these are displayed around school.

All parents are asked to discuss the Online Safety rules with their child and both parents and pupils are asked to sign an Internet agreement form.

At home, sometimes children can be given unsupervised access to the Internet via mobile devices such as mobile phones, iPods, iPads and other tablet devices. This, potentially, allows them to access all kinds of society (both good and bad) and bring them virtually into their homes.

Here are some tips and useful links to help you to keep your children safe online:  

 

Google Legends Assembly 21st November 2016
 On Monday 21st November, children enjoyed a fantastic assembly led by the ‘Google’ team. The assembly was all about how the children can keep themselves safe on-line. The children also met Andy Burnham MP who was our guest visitor on this occasion. We would like to thank both the ‘Google’ team and Mr Burnham MP for their time and support with this important assembly.

Safer Internet Day 2016

This week children at Lowton West have been playing their part for a better and safer internet.

Miss Bailey would like to say a huge thank you to all the teachers and children this week for taking part in Safer Internet Day 2016. The work that has been produced is great and the posters look amazing!   

The winners for the poster competition will be announced after the half term.

A special thank you to five members of the school council who played a big part in today’s assembly, you were fantastic!
