E-Safety Advice for Parents and Carers


The internet is a fantastic resource that enables us to connect, communicate and be creative in a number of different ways and on a range of devices but it is always changing and keeping up to date with your child's use of technology can be a challenge.  Children need advice and protection when it comes to managing their online usage and there are a range of organisations to support with this.

In school the children learn about E-Safety as part of our PSHCE and Computing curriculum. We also celebrate 'Safer Internet Day' each year with whole school and class activities. In addition to this, we aim to work in partnership with our parents and carers to ensure that the safe and responsible use of technology is transferred from school to home.

The aim of this page is to give parents and carers access to advice and resources to help you at home to ensure that you feel confident in supporting and protecting your children.

DB Primary

We use DB Primary as our learning platform and we ask all new starters to the school to sign a user agreement to help everyone stay safe. This is a secure learning envionrment with educational games and activities for the children to use. There is a messaging function through DB Primary which is monitored through a flagged word system by staff in school. The 'yellow whistle' is always available for children to press if they see or hear anything that upsets them while they are using the platform which alerts a member of staff.
