At school we often use the Internet for research and increasingly we are using it as a tool for creating and presenting work. This Learning Platform is an example of how the Internet has become more and more interactive.

Many of our children are used to using the Internet at school and at home and I'm sure that many of them would say that they use it more often than their parents. This section of our website is designed to give information and advice to parents so that they can help their children use the Internet responsibly and safely.  

We are aware that some children are using sites such as Instagram and Facebook to make contact with their friends outside of school.

According to the compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, users need to be 13 before they sign up, although it is easy for children to enter false information.

As part of our PSHEe and Computing curriculum we will be addressing these issues with the children and teaching them to act responsibly when using the Internet.

As part of Little Commons commitment to E-Safety, you can book a time to discuss any concerns or require any support regarding E-Safety. 

The 4 big internet providers in the UK – BT, Sky, TalkTalk and Virgin Media - provide their customers with free parental controls which can be activated at any time. They have come together to produce these helpful video guides to help you to download and set-up the controls offered by your provider. (Visit the help guides here)
