Keeping Your Child Safe Online

Online Safety at Cleveland Road Primary School and at Home


Online Safety is an important part of keeping children safe at Cleveland Road Primary School. E-Safety (online safety) is taught to all pupils, which explains and demonstrates how to stay safe and behave appropriately online but we can only be successful in keeping children safe online if we work with you. It's important that we are all vigilant when children are using the Internet and act to ensure they are protected from the people who may pose a risk to them. Children can accidentally or deliberately be exposed to illegal, unwanted or unpleasant content, comments or activity online and there are steps you can take to minimise this risk.


Four steps to providing a safer Internet for your children


1: Have an on-going conversation about what your child is using the Internet for and how they can stay safe


2: Use safety tools on social network sites and other online services. Look through the helpful links on the other side of this page to find privacy guides and how to set these up.


3: Decide if you would like to use parental controls at home. Look through the helpful links on the other side of this page to find parental control guides and how to set these up at home.


4: Understand what devices can use the Internet and research devices, games, films and apps before purchasing for your child. Using the Common Sense Media website will help you understand a product. 


We follow the S.M.A.R.T rules at Cleveland Road Primary School while using the Internet



Keep safe by being careful not to give out personal information when you’re chatting or posting online. Personal information includes your email address, phone number and password.



Meeting someone you have only been in touch with online can be dangerous. Only do so with your parents’ or carers’ permission and even then only when they can be present. Remember online friends are still strangers even if you have been talking to them for a long time



Accepting emails, IM messages, or opening files, pictures or texts from people you don’t know or trust can lead to problems – they may contain viruses or nasty messages!



Someone online might lie about who they are and information on the internet may not be true. Always check information with other websites, books or someone who knows. If you like chatting online it’s best to only chat to your real world friends and family



Tell your parent, carer or a trusted adult if someone or something makes you feel uncomfortable or worried, or if you or someone you know is being bullied online.

Pupil Acceptable Use Agreements


Every year, Cleveland Road Primary School celebrates Safer Internet Day with the rest of the world. During the day, children discuss their online behaviour at school and at home and learn about how they can act safely whilst enjoying the Internet. 


Cleveland Primary promotes online safety across the entire school and we want to ensure every pupil understands their responsibilities online. We talk to the pupils about the Internet rules, how to be fair to others and keep themselves safe online. 


Key stage 1, the class teacher will read the agreement and make sure the children understand the rules and how to follow them. Once the class understands the rules the class will sign the document as a class.


Key Stage 2, the class teacher will read the agreement (longer than KS2) and discuss the rules with the class. Each pupil will be asked to sign their name to say they will be using the computing systems at Cleveland responsibly, to ensure that there is no risk to their safety or others. They will also follow these rules when using the Internet at home.


The agreements can be read by clicking the document below. 

Safer Internet Day film for 3-7 year olds

This film accompanies the Safer Internet Day education pack for Early Years/ KS1. Red and Murphy, our favourite pair of puppets, talk about what it feels like when being online becomes too much. They try meditation and conclude it is important to take a minute, switch devices off and talk to a grown up.
