Online Safety

Here at Richmond Methodist Primary School we take children's internet safety very seriously. We believe the internet provides us with a rich and diverse resource but must be treated responsibly and with great care. Children need to learn how to keep safe whilst using the Internet, understand the responsibility of becoming digitally active and how to access help should they need it.

There is comprehensive advice and support for parents on this website:

https://www.internetmatters.org/


To this end we have a list of internet rules which each class has clearly displayed and they should also be followed during the children's internet use at home. We also recommend the use of Swiggle.org.uk as a safe search engine feature for your child to use at home. We urge you to consider your internet security settings if you have not already done so. Our e safety policy is available on request.

If you require practical support with regard safety settings on mobile devices, please contact the school office/Mrs Swinbank and we will be pleased to arrange some time with our school technical support. These drop in sessions will be held between 9 -10am, by appointment only. This site, although American, has some really useful information around settings on devices and also Parent’s Guides to and of current Apps and games. https://www.commonsensemedia.org/blog/little-kids 

In addition, subject to numbers, we can offer some time after school (until 4pm) in our computer suite for computing school work if internet access at home is not available. Again, please get in touch with the school office/Mrs Swinbank and we will be pleased to arrange this for you. Please note, adults will need to stay with their children for this time.

Instagram Safety

 

Officers from the Neighbourhood Policing Teams within North Yorkshire Police would like to make parents aware of the following update that has released on snapchat.
If your children have the Snapchat app and GPS on their phone please take a look at this.

It seems with the new update there is a new feature on Snapchat. When you open the app place two fingers on the screen and drag them together 'pinch' just like when zooming out on an interactive map. This will then open the new feature. It shows your location with near exact accuracy and can be only a couple of meters wrong. This means people can see exactly where you are at any time.

To turn this off there is a settings button in the top right and can turn the feature to ghost mode. This will hide your location from others. Also turn off the phones GPS as an extra level of security.

If you need any help please contact your phone provider or visit an O2 store and speak to one of their gurus. This is a free service and regardless of the network you are on. The gurus can help with any technical questions and security advice.

Please remind your children to only have 'friends' on these apps who they actually know, this will keep them safer online.

While we have focused this on keeping children safe. Please be mindful features like this could be used by criminals, knowing when you're out or even where you live. Always be mindful of posting pictures with cycles and such which would show people exactly where you store them. Then show when you are out.
