Here at Stanley Grove Primary Academy, we are committed to ensuring that children know how to stay safe on line. We have just recruited the Stanley Grove Web Warriors who will be working with Miss Aimen to support staff, parents and children so we can all make the most of the wonderful internet but in a safe way. They will be sharing new app and game recommendations as well as top tips for sharing personal information and giving advice on cyber bullying. Look out for Web Warrior newsletter take over weeks.
The school’s E-safety policy for Parents can be found on the School Policies and Procedures Page.

When pupils receive new technology as gifts, including phones, we would like to remind all of our pupils of the need to keep themselves safe when using social media, and online, generally.
The following tips may be useful:
-Use the privacy settings on the phone to limit who reads your feed
-Keep location settings off when on social media
-Do not share personal information or images/video with anyone online
-Do not accept a friend request from someone you do not know in real life
-Know how to block or report anything concerning on sites and apps they use. Use Net Aware to find out how.
-Look out for the CEOP icon to report any suspicious or concerning areas on apps/sites
-Check out the NSPCC tools, including being Share Aware.
-Remember that online behaviour – including sharing personal information – should mirror behaviour in person
-Perhaps download the ZipIt app to help you to deal with requests for inappropriate photos.
If you have received or sent any information, images or video to someone whom you do not know, you may want to talk about this with someone.
