02 Jul Latest Internet Safety Advice
Police provide schools with valuable advice.
We have recently received the following advice from the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Command via the Primary Schools Liaison Officer at Stoke Newington Police Station.

In his accompanying email, the Liaison Officer says,
‘Depending on the age that students are now, they may not have yet discovered computers, smartphones or tablets, unless it’s just pressing the buttons! Alternatively, they may already be used to using certain trusted websites and apps or – if they’re older – using social networking sites.
By the time they are older still, they will probably already be ‘online veterans’ who know their way around the internet, apps, games, downloading and social networking with ease. Chances are, they know more about these things than you do. But they almost certainly don’t have the life-experience and wisdom to handle all of the situations they encounter.
Which is why we need a measured approach to keeping our children safe when they’re online.’
With these word in minds, we feel it is important and necessary to provide the advice in its entirety. If you wish to speak to us about anything contained in the advice then please do not hesitate to contact the school.
