e-Safety at Hillocks

e-safety

e-safety is really important and we take it very seriously at Hillocks Primary School. Children are able to go online more than ever before. It is important to teach children how to use the internet safely and not just restrict their usage. Children need to learn how to become responsible online citizens and take care of themselves and others in the virtual world.

Where to go for help

There are lots of amazing resources out there on the web to help improve parent and children’s understanding.

e-safety week

Every year, schools around the world take part in e-safety week. This week helps to raise awareness so that pupils in all year groups are prepared to face the challenges and situations that they may face online. Watch out for e-safety week in February.

TikTok is a social media app where users can record and upload short video clips. In August 2018, TikTok merged with Musical.ly, meaning all users with Musical.ly accounts were moved to TikTok.   Click on link below to see information about the app and how to keep your children safe while using it.
