Safer Internet Day

 

Every February, St Luke’s takes part in ‘Safer Internet Day’ when the whole school comes together to think about online habits and how to be the best digital citizen possible! Take a look at some of our work below 😊

How to Report Online Content

The RHC button is an asset of SWGfL, a charity working internationally to ensure all benefit from technology, free from harm.

The button has been developed to offer anyone living in the UK a simple and convenient mechanism for gaining access to reporting routes for commonly used social networking sites, gaming platforms, apps and streaming services alongside trusted online safety advice, help and support. It also provides access to an online mechanism for reporting online harm to the RHC service for those over the age of 13 where an intial report has been made to industry but no action has been taken. RHC will review content in line with a sites' community standards and act in a mediatory capacity where content goes against these.

Children under 13 years of age are encouraged to tell an adult that they trust about what has happened and to ask for their help in reporting this going through our how we can help resource together.

RHC also have advice and links to reporting routes for other online harms people may come across or face, such as impersonation, privacy violations and intimate image abuse. 

The RHC button provides a gateway to the RHC reporting pages, an area of the RHC website offering: 

  • links to reporting routes on commonly used sites for 8 types of online harm

  • help, advice and support on what to do if experiencing or witnessing harm online

  • signposting to industry partners reporting forms and the ability to reportlegal but harmful content directly to RHC for further investigation

Reporting to RHC

 

Reports can be made 24/7 through the online reporting forms and helpline practitioners will review and respond to reports  within 72 hours between 10am and 4pm Monday to Friday.

Reports can be made to RHC by anyone over the age of 13. SWGfL operates 3 helplines and to be sure you're getting the right support take a look at the Helpline flowchart to find out who can best support you.

The Child Exploitation Online Protection (CEOP) website is a police agency tackling child abuse on the internet.

Acceptable Use Policies

 

We ask all children, young people and adults involved in the life of St Luke’s Primary School to sign an Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) to outline how we expect them to behave when they are online, and/or using school networks, connections, internet connectivity and devices, cloud platforms and social media (both when on school site and outside of school).

Your child has also signed an AUP which outlines appropriate behaviour online – there are copies of these AUPs below. There is also a copy of a PARENT / CARER AUP – as it is important that this positive behaviour is also modelled at home by adults.

We tell your children that they should not behave any differently when they are out of school or using their own device or home network. What we tell pupils about behaviour and respect applies to all members of the school community, whether they are at home or school:

“Treat yourself and others with respect at all times; treat people in the same way when you are online or on a device as you would face to face.”

Please see Mr Skywalker if you have any questions about our AUPs.

Current Issues

KS2 pupils at St Luke’s recently took part in an online safety survey which helped us to identify the things that children are worrying about. Here are the results.

As you can see, Online Bullying, Hate Content and Too Much time being spent online are currently some of the top issues worrying our pupils.

How we plan to address this:
  • High quality E-Learning and Online Safety lessons delivered across the school

  • Weekly ‘digital discussions’ linked to key issues shared on Teams to all pupils

  • News, updates and useful links shared on social media to parents, carers and families

  • ‘Digital Worry Box’ for pupils to report their concerns to staff

  • ‘Digital Concerns’ form for parents / carers shared on weekly newsletters so that adults have a direct reporting route

  • Reporting routes made clear on website to allow adults to make sensible decisions when faces with an issue

Parental Controls

Parental controls are the names for a group of settings that put you in control of what content your child can see. Combined with privacy settings these can help you protect your children from the things they shouldn’t see or experience online.

 

www.internetmatters.org has a number of step by step guides that will help you to set up the right controls and privacy settings on the networks, gadgets, apps, and sites that your children use to give them a safer online experience. Click on the button below to access the website. ​
