Online Safety

At Chingford Foundation School, we are quick to ensure that students are aware of the importance of online safety through our very successful drop-days in Years 7 and 8 to our PHSE curriculum and our form sessions. It is one of the core requirements of Keeping Children Safe in Education 2022. There is a great deal of good available online but there is also a great deal of harmful content to be very aware of as we navigate our children through this digital age.

In this section, there will be some helpful guidance for parents and carers as to how they can support the work of our staff by reinforcing these messages at home. It is important for parents and carers to have knowledge of such apps, streaming sites, search engines to name a few but it is also important to support your child's knowledge surrounding online safety and behaviour when going online.

Parents and carers can help their children to:
- Evaluate what they are viewing online
- Recognise techniques used for persuasion
- Understand acceptable and unacceptable online behaviour
- Identify online risks
- Know how and when to seek support, including reporting to CEOP (https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/professionals/resources/
