Digital Parenting

 

Digital Parenting is a magazine that has been designed to help families to live better digital lives. The magazine is sponsored by Vodafone who can play a crucial role in supporting families to  promote their children’s online safety. It can be challenging to keep pace with the latest devices, apps, games and the way young people use them: when used appropriately, the digital world brings exciting opportunities that can enrich family life.

Digital Parenting is the go-to guide for  parents and carers  to get up to speed on the latest digital technology and wellbeing issues so families can get the most out of the online world and navigate it safely. Vodafone have also launched the Digital Parenting hub where  families can find even more practical advice, top tips and expert views to help  to shape important conversations with children about their digital life.

Keep an eye on @VodafoneUK and vodafone. co.uk/digitalparenting for more updates throughout the year and the following is the current magazine:

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 and inappropriate.

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