E-Safety for Children

Staying safe online – Top Tips and advice for children.

At Broomfield Primary School we have a strong commitment to E-Safety. We ensure all children are taught about keeping safe on the internet on a regular basis.

Talk about their online world.

We talk to children about crossing the road, bullying and speaking to strangers. But what about staying safe  in the digital world?

Having regular conversations about what your child is doing online – just like you would their day at school – is the best way to keep them safe.

You’ll be able to spot any problems, encourage them to come to you if they’re worried and make sure they know what’s ok to share online – and what’s not.

You can find out more about the social networks, apps and games your child uses with our Net Aware (https://www.net-aware.org.uk/) tool.

3 tips to help start the conversation

  1. Explore sites and apps together and talk about any concerns.
  2. Ask your child if they know how to stay safe online.
  3. Talk about personal information and what to share online.
