Online Safety

DATE FOR YOUR DIARY!  25TH April 2024 9:00am – Police led cyberbullying parent/carer session.


Chapel Allerton Primary School has a duty to provide pupils with quality, safe internet access as part of their learning journey. Internet use is a necessary tool for staff and pupils and will enhance learning. We believe it is essential for online safety guidance to be given to the pupils on a regular, progressive and meaningful basis.


At Chapel Allerton Primary School, the pupils learn, or develop a culture of keeping safe online, through:


  • Timetabled and structured Online Safety lessons taught explicitly as part of the Computing curriculum (See Progression of Skills in  Computing document). Lesson content includes secure passwords, personal information, online kindness, understanding age-appropriate content, trust, downloading content, reporting concerns, posting content, commenting appropriately, managing time online.
  • Our PSHE curriculum
  • Our MindMate curriculum
  • Regular Online Safety Assemblies
  • Regular classroom discussions and circles
  • Safer Internet Day activities
  • Pupil Voice Discussions with the Computing Subject Leader

How can parents/carers keep children safe online


Many of us see our online lives and offline lives as different.

But for children growing up with technology and the internet, there isn’t a difference – online life and offline life is just life.

Technology can move at an extraordinarily fast pace. So it can be difficult to know how to start talking to your child about what they’re doing online, who they might be speaking to or discussing the potential risks and issues.


Starting the conversation 

Talking regularly with your child can help keep them safe online. Making it part of daily conversation, like you would about their day at school, will help your child feel relaxed.

It also means when they do have any worries, they’re more likely to come and speak to you.

It is important to have regular conversations about staying safe online and to encourage children to speak to you if they come across something worrying online.

These resources will support you to talk to your child about a range of online safety issues, set up home filtering in a child-friendly way and set up age-appropriate parental controls on digital devices:



Parental Guidance

Parent Info is a collaboration between CEOP and The Parent Zone. 

The Parent Zone was founded in 2005 and has a track record of providing information, support and advice to parents. In recent years, The Parent Zone's work has focused on the impact of digital technologies on families. They provide information, resources and training for parents and those who work with them.  CEOP is the child protection command of the National Crime Agency. CEOP reaches over three million children and young people a year through its Thinkuknow education programme and regularly conveys its vital online safety messages to over 100,000 practitioners (such as social workers, teachers and police officers) registered to their network, who cascade these messages directly to children and young people.


Here you'll find a collection of articles, tips, expert advice and resources designed to help parents keep up with what their children are doing online.
