E-Safety - Information for parents and carers




Keeping children safe on-line


e-Safety is an important part of keeping children safe at Marland School. We have extensive security measures in place, which are monitored both internally and externally, to help safeguard pupils from potential dangers or unsuitable material. Any e-Safety incidents are recorded and managed in accordance with our e-Safety Policy. e-Safety is taught to all pupils explaining and demonstrating how to stay safe and behave appropriately online.


We can only be successful in keeping children safe online if we work with parents to ensure the e-Safety message is consistent. It is important that parents speak to their children about how they can keep safe and behave appropriately online.


It’s essential to be realistic – banning the internet or technology will not work and it often makes a child less likely to report a problem. Education around safe use is essential.



These five guiding principles may help you and your child develop a positive and safe means of making the most of the virtual world:

Prioritise Safety

Teach children not to give out personal information, like their name, address, telephone number, or the school they go to.

Set Parental Controls

Agree on a list of websites your child is allowed to visit and remember to check the minimum age limit on services like Facebook and YouTube.

Discuss Their Activity

Take an interest in their online world. Talk to them about their favourite websites, videos, and their online friends.

Set Boundaries

Establish time limits for activities such as using the internet and games consoles. Make sure to set aside time for “unplugged” family activity.

Be Open

Let them know that they can tell you about anything that happens on the internet and that you’ll listen without judgement.
