At Lambs Lane, we know that going on-line can be really exciting. It can let us do lots of fun, interesting and useful things, but it's important to know how to use it safely. As part of the curriculum, your child will have supervised access to the internet. We believe that the effective use of the internet is a worthwhile and essential skill for our pupils.
The UK Safer Internet Centre have produced some fantastic How-To guides for parents which show you how to change the safety/child lock settings on smartphones, gaming devices, ipads etc. They are very useful and you can find them by clicking here.
Wokingham Borough Council also produce information to support Parents. The 2019 Online Safety Information for Parents and Carers handout can be found here.
Here are some fun online safety activities which you might want to explore at home with your children:
In Game Chat - what you need to know. A useful article covering things to be aware of when gaming online.
LEARN ABOUT IT! TALK ABOUT IT! DEAL WITH IT! A good website with some useful resources to help you do just that and make an informed choice about your child's online safety.
Vodafone have an informative site DIGITAL PARENTING which will help you to help your child, manage their digital world. They also produce a regular magazine.
