Staying Safe Online


A quick online safety update, with the infamous 'Momo' rearing its head again. We have received reports that unscrupulous individuals online have taken to embedding 'Momo' videos right in the middle of videos children may search for, e.g. music, cartoons or gaming. This practice is, of course, deplorable in every sense, as the 'Momo' content is certainly unsuitable for children and could be quite upsetting. We understand that video-hosting websites are working to delete these videos - but in the meantime, vigilance is the key. If your child is using the Internet, the best way to protect them is to watch, and ensure that they are viewing videos from certified providers (e.g. the BBC).

At St John's Angell Town Primary School, we take eSafety extremely seriously.  We believe that it is the right of every child to feel safe and secure when using technology.  It is vital that parents and carers work with us to ensure children stay safe when using technology. When we talk about eSafety, we are not only referring to the internet. We are also talking about the use of computers, games consoles, mobile phones, televisions and tablets.

 The Computing curriculum has put a large emphasis on eSafety and at school we work with the children to teach them how to use technology safely, respectfully and responsibly.  At school we have emphasised eSafety by taking part in activities to celebrate Safer Internet Day.  This work is ongoing and will continue to be embedded through our Computing curriculum and as an integral part of our work on safeguarding.
