At Southwold Primary School, we want staff, children, parents and carers to create a school community that embraces the use of new technologies. We promote the use of ICT to enhance learning and thinking and teach all of the children how to keep themselves safe. All adults in school ensure that pupils know how to report incidents and problems confidently and straight away.
At home, many children use computers to play games and learn. We want to encourage you to ensure children are supervised at all times at home, especially when accessing the internet.

When your child is using the internet at school, or at home, it is very important that they stay safe. We teach your child to FLAG IT, BLOCK IT & REPORT IT if they see anything on the internet they are concerned about.
Your child would have been taught at school how to stay safe when using the internet on the computer, an Ipad or a mobile phone. It is also a good idea to talk about these safety issues at home with your child.
If you are worried about anything your child has seen on the internet you can report it to the police by clicking on this button:
Remember, when using any computer, tablet or phone devices we teach your child to be SMART:
S SAFE – Don’t give out your own information
M MEET – Only meet people you have met online with your parents
A ACCEPTING – Only open emails & texts from people you trust
R RELIABLE – Some people online tell lies, only talk to real world friends and family
T TELL – Tell a parent or adult you trust if something you see online makes you feel uncomfortable

CEOP – The Child Exploitation & Online Protection can help and protect you. If someone has acted inappropriately online towards you or someone you know, you can report it directly to CEOP. It could be sexual chat, being asked to do something that makes you feel uncomfortable or someone asking to meet up.
