Be safe online with home learning

Whilst the majority of us are home learning, more than ever, we need to be safe online.  Please remember our code of conduct SMART.

Here are some resources about online safety at home that you might want to use whilst you are home learning.  They involve a simple 15 minute activity to do with your child with new activities issued fortnightly.

You’ll find lots more advice on keeping your child safe online at www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents and our dedicated E-Safety page on the website https://www.ivybank.cheshire.sch.uk/page/e-safety/1716

If you’re worried that a child is at risk of harm online, you should call the police.

Children can make a report to CEOP at https://www.ceop.police.uk/safety-centre/ if they find something online that makes them worry.
