E-safety update June 2017 

 

SNAPCHAT MAP

Snapchat’s latest feature lets you share your location with your Snapchat friends, and view their location on a map, updating when you open the photo messaging app. The new feature will be available to all iOS and Android Snapchat users across the globe.

 

You will be able to see exactly where your Snapchat friends are hanging out and what they are doing there if they have shared it as a story.

 

All you have to do is access your camera, pinch the screen, or do a zoom out touch motion with your fingers, and you can view the Snap Map. You can view the map and allow friends to see your location, and story if you have posted one at the location you took it.

Alternatively you can search the map in ‘Ghost mode’ – when this is enabled your friends will not be able to see your location, but you can see theirs.

Concerns arise that if children have accepted snapchat friends, who they don't know, these 'friends' can see where a child is or lives. Please make sure your child has the setting on ghost mode and talk to them about how to keep their location safe from people they do not know. 

 

If you have any concerns, please see Miss Wells. 

E-safety news

 

E-safety day 20th February 2017

 

On Monday we had our termly E-safety day. Across the school, lessons took place which covered a range of e-safety matters: protecting personal details, thinking before we click or post, ensuring we don’t share images of someone without their permission and knowing what to do if we are concerned. Further details are below.

 

Quotes from the day:

Year 1: “Don’t tell strangers your full name”

Year 2: “Think before you click on things as it could be inappropriate or use bad words or could upset you” Year 3: “Don’t tell anyone online your age, password or home number”

“Make sure you tell a trustworthy adult if you are worried”

“We made a bar graph of the most popular sites. We found that Youtube was the most popular”

Year 4: “You shouldn’t post a picture of someone else without their permission like a baby photo”

“Be careful what you post as it might be mean or nasty and could upset someone else”

Year 5: “Be careful what you share as you don’t always know who might see it”

“Don’t tell anyone your personal details online”

“Think, think, think before you click, click click”

Year 6: “Do not post or share any inappropriate images to anyone online”

“If you feel that you might get embarrassed or told off because of your images or post, don’t share it”

Year 5   E-safety day February 2017  

 

During E-safety day, we watched and discussed the new reosureces from Ceop called 'Play, Like, Share'. 

Play Like Share follows the adventures of Sam, Ellie and Alfie as they form a band and enter their school’s Battle of the Bands contest, taking on the mean but ‘cool’ Popcorn Wizards as they go. The three friends learn that while the internet can help, they need to use it wisely and safely.  We learnt  how to stay safe online and in particular how to spot the early signs of manipulative, pressurising and threatening behaviour by people we might meet online. We also discussed what to do if we did have any concerns. 

 

Please watch the videos at home and join with us as we all learn how to stay safe online.

 

Year 3 E-safety Day February 2017

 

Year 3 started off the day discussing how the internet can be so much fun and can be used for many different things. We completed surveys and discovered that the most popular use of the internet in year 3 was watching youtube!

After that, we started to think about the internet a little bit more and discovered that anybody and everybody can put things on the internet and that we cannot always trust what we see or read. We must take responsibility when we are online and one way is by protecting ourselves - keeping our Personal Information including our identity, passwords, images and addresses safe. We created amazing posters to remind us of the things we need to keep private.

Then we looked at communicating on line. We role played what could happen to pictures when they were posted on line. Each child drew a picture, “posted” it then commented on other people’s pictures. Through this activity we started to discuss how our messages can have a huge impact on other people’s feelings and how any negative messages could lead to cyberbullying. This activity was very thought provoking and everyone understood the importance of being kind online and what we should do if we felt cyberbullying was happening to us.

To end our day, we listened to some fun songs which reinforced our learning about protecting personal information and being responsible on line.

Year 2 E-safety Day

 

Today, we were focusing on keeping ourselves safe online. Lots of us like playing games on laptops and tablets so we shared the games that we enjoy and discussed any problems we have ever come across whilst gaming. We recapped that we needed to press the red cross if a pop up we don't understand appears and to tell an adult. We also remembered that we needed to be good friends online, always remembering our manners and treating people with respect. Today, we looked at the information we give out when playing online. We agreed that we should always make up a nickname so we are not revealing our real name. Also, we decided that it is never necessary for us to tell another gamer our address, school or age; these are things that we have promised to keep private. If we encounter any problems, we know to tell our parents, teacher or a trusted adult.

Year 1 - E-Safety Day

 

For their E-Safety day this term, Year One focused on their personal information and how act around strangers both online and offline. In the morning, they explored what their personal information is and which information is safe to share online. They learnt to keep their full name, where they live, phone numbers, where they go to school and pictures of themselves a secret from strangers online. In the afternoon we discussed how to behave and keep ourselves safe around strangers that may be encountered offline.

The films and sessions aim to give children the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to:

  • Identify signs of manipulative, pressurising or threatening behaviour online.
  • Respond safely if they think someone is trying to manipulate, pressure or threaten them.
  • Understand their rights online, and respect those of others.
  • Take measures to control their privacy and digital footprint.
  • Get help from an appropriate source if they need it.

There are also further extension sessions, designed to be delivered to particularly risk-taking or vulnerable children, that address; self-esteem, commercial risks, privacy and security and online grooming

E-safety group

We now have an E-safety group who meet every other week. Children from each class will meet to discuss how to promote online safety across the school and at home. The members are there to voice the opinions of the pupils in Callington Primary school so please do tell them how you think we can improve and develop our E-safety programme.  

An important message

What to do if you want to report something....

 

Many sites now include the 'report abuse' button. This can be used if you would like to report suspicious individuals or behaviour directly to the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP). The reports are analysed, appropriate action is taken and CEOP provide feedback on reports to you.
 

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.


IF YOU FEEL WORRIED OR THREATENED BY SOMEONE'S BEHAVIOUR ONLINE, YOU CAN REPORT IT BY CLICKING ON THIS LINK.

 

http://ceop.police.uk/

Children at Callington Primary School use the Internet on a regular basis as part of their learning. In school, we have regular 'e-safety' activities to remind children of the importance of keeping themselves safe online.

 

At home, sometimes children can be given unsupervised access to the Internet. This, potentially, allows them to access all kinds of society (both good and bad) and bring them virtually into their homes.

 

Below are links to websites and resources to help promote E-safety within your home. For pictures and examples of work from pervious E-safety days within school, see the bottom of this page or on the class pages.

Why is Internet Use Important?

The purpose of Internet use in school is to raise educational standards, to promote pupil achievement, to support the professional work of staff and to enhance the school's management information and administration systems.

Internet use is part of the statutory curriculum and a necessary tool for learning. It is an essential element in 21st century life for education, business and social interaction. Access to the Internet is therefore an entitlement for pupils who show a responsible and mature approach to its use. Our school has a duty to provide pupils with quality Internet access

Pupils will use the Internet outside school and will need to learn how to evaluate Internet information and to take care of their own safety and security.

 

How does Internet Use Benefit Education?

Benefits of using the Internet in education include:

·         access to world-wide educational resources including museums and art galleries;

·         inclusion in the National Education Network which connects all UK schools;

·         educational and cultural exchanges between pupils world-wide;

·         access to experts in many fields for pupils and staff;

·         access to learning materials through the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE)

·         professional development for staff through access to national developments, educational materials and effective curriculum practice;

·         collaboration across support services and professional associations;

·         improved access to technical support including remote management of

·         networks and automatic system updates;

·         exchange of curriculum and administration data with other schools and access to learning wherever and whenever convenient.

 

How can Internet Use Enhance Learning?

·         The school Internet access will be designed expressly for pupil use and includes filtering appropriate to the age of pupils.

·         Pupils will be taught what Internet use is acceptable and what is not and given clear objectives for Internet use.

·         Internet access will be planned to enrich and extend learning activities.

·         Staff should guide pupils in on-line activities that will support learning outcomes planned for the pupils' age and maturity.

·         Pupils will be educated in the effective use of the Internet in research, including the skills of knowledge location, retrieval and evaluation.

 

Our children will be taught:

·         to STOP and THINK before they CLICK

·         to develop a range of strategies to evaluate and verify information before accepting its accuracy;

·         to be aware that the author of a web site / page may have a particular bias or purpose and to develop skills to recognise what that may be;

·         to know how to narrow down or refine a search;

·         to understand acceptable  behaviour when using an online environment  / email, i.e. be polite, no bad or abusive language or other inappropriate behaviour; keeping personal information private;

·         to understand how photographs can be manipulated and how web content can attract the wrong sort of attention;

·         to understand why on-line ‘friends’ may not be who they say they are and to understand why they should be careful in online environments;

·         to understand why they should not post or share detailed accounts of their personal lives, contact information, daily routines, location, photographs and videos and to know how to ensure they have turned-on privacy settings;

·         to understand why they must not post pictures or videos of others without their permission;

·         to know not to download any files – such as music files - without permission;

·         to have strategies for dealing with receipt of inappropriate materials;

·         to understand the impact of cyberbullying and trolling and know how to seek help if they are affected by any form of online bullying.

·         to know how to report any abuse including cyberbullying; and how to seek help if they experience problems when using the internet and related technologies, i.e. parent or carer, teacher or trusted staff member, or an organisation such as Childline or the CLICK CEOP button.

E-safety day 2016

 

Year 5

 

E-safety day in Year 5 was a day of discussion and debate as we spoke about the ways we use the internet and the potential dangers. We looked at how having lots of ‘friends’ or ‘followers’ on social media didn’t mean you had lots of friends in real life and how we might not actually know the people watching our online activity. Then we explored our digital footprint and how whatever you put online is there for ever. We looked at some videos to remind us how to behave online and to each other and created E-safety help cards, posters and a board game.

 

Do you know that everything you put online will be there forever? This is your digital footprint. Remember, if you are embarrassed by what you are doing, then don’t do it! Would you be shocked if someone else saw that information? Do you know information you should be careful not to share online? What are some examples of personal information that is OK to share?

 

Always ask your teacher or parents if you are unsure or concerned.

 

Have a look at the videos below for more information. 

E-safety day in Upper Foundation Stage

In Red classes the children have been learning to use the iPads safely and remain on safe apps. The children learnt how to use the glow draw app to create pictures and practise letter formation. Smartie the penguin taught us how to be safe if our iPad displays messages we are unsure about or is open on an app that we shouldn’t be using. We learnt a rap to help us remember…

Before you tap and click…

You need to stop and think…

And TELL someome!

We can now use the iPads safely in class to support our learning in lots of different areas of the early years curriculum.

Year 3

 

Year 3 decided to focus their learning on age restrictions and the appropriateness of games and content on the internet.

We were very surprised learning about some age restrictions – often not being able to guess the age of the game by looking at the picture.  Then there was lots of discussion about the reasons why we actually needed age restrictions and how important it was to take notice of them.  This led into thinking about age restrictions for social media sites and again we discussed the impact of what could happen if we did not adhere to age restrictions.

Imagine a world with no age restrictions – A disaster waiting to happen!

This inspired us to create some art work and animations about how dangerous it could be.

 

Imagine a world without any age restrictions........

E-Safety November 2015

                                             E-Safety Day November 2015


In Upper Foundation, we learnt about how to keep safe online for this day. We looked at all of the games we played on our tablets, computers and parent's phones. We decided that to be safe you should always have and adult with you when you play these games who knows which game you are playing. We also learnt, if something we are unsure about pops up- we tell an adult.

Stay Safe On The Internet

Some very important information about how to stay safe on the internet. Shared by the policeman after his talk to Year 5/6. Stay safe!

Year 5 Cyber bullying - Say it their face

If you wouldn't say it in person, why say it online? Stop Cyber-bullying. Sometimes we say things online we would never say in person.

 

Year 5  - Cyberbullying

 

In Year 5 we decided to focus on cyber bullying. First, we looked at the definition of bullying and decided that bully is the ‘deliberate, hurtful and repeated behaviour by an individual or individuals which causes an imbalance of power.’ Having discussed this we looked at how this can become cyber bullying. Cyber bullying is the use of the internet and technological devices to bully someone.

 

We found out that many people say nasty or hurtful things online as they feel they are behind a mask and we discussed why this was. We watched the film ‘Say it to their face’  (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YRznvxQUYXc) which was quite shocking but showed us the impact of words. We also looked at some of the CBBC film  (http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/26136189)   which highlighted that cyber bullying can effect anyone, adult or child and the bullies can be anyone child or adult.

 

As we know, many people hide begin the screen or mask of the internet. We discussed the types of ‘avatars’ we have on our online games and what they say about us. We know it is important to have avatars to hide our identities  in order to keep us safe but they can also be used to hide the identity of a bully. We created our own masks.  On one side it showed a positive avatar where we have protected out identity and included some of the SMART rules for safe use of the internet. On the other side  we showed the negative side of an avatar such as lying about your age, saying nasty things to others  and included the impact on sufferers of cyber bullying.

 

In the afternoon, we were lucky to have a visit from the local policeman. He highlighted further the dangers of the internet if not used wisely. We were able to show him that we knew how to protect ourselves and keep ourselves safe on the internet.  We know a lot about E-safety but we must now put it into practise and keep ourselves and others safe! We must remember it is a digital Tattoo that is left behind not a footprint as everything online is there forever on one form or another.

 

A message from the teachers:

Although the children know how to keep safe, some children did admit to playing games above their age restriction, talking to those they have not met in person and sharing information which could give away their identity. We encouraged the children to speak to their parents, teachers or responsible adults around them if they had any concern. We sk you to ask the children as well about their online activity and monitor their use of the net.  Please go to the  CEOP website to report any suspicious activity  using the red button  https://www.ceop.police.uk/

 

Some articles on Cyber bullying

Year 4 stay SMART online

 

In year 4 we decided to focus on staying safe online. First we discussed how the internet is a fantastic resource that can be used to enrich our lives with information and a place to have fun. This led onto our main focus staying safe online. We discussed how the internet could be a dangerous place, where we should be vigilant and careful about information we share and accept.  We then shared and discussed the SMART rules: Safe, Meeting, Accepting, Reliable and Tell available online: http://www.kidsmart.org.uk/beingsmart/ .

 

We watched some scenarios discussing how the person could have stayed safe and how we could put the SMART rules into practice. A main point we discuss was staying safe online and what information is safe. We discussed the fact that you would not talk to a stranger in public so the internet is no different, that you should only communicate with people you know. Importantly, we also discussed the fact that you should Tell someone if people are contacting you and that if meeting anyone new, you should be accompanied by an adult.

After break, we had some situation cards such as a person you don’t know is messaging you to meet up, what do you do? The children acted out the situation and provided a solution to the dilemma as well

 

In the afternoon we looked at Reliability of information. This involved us researching certain statements and websites to see if they were fact or fiction. This taught us that not all sources of information on the internet are accurate and that we should check at least two sources to check it’s reliability.

Year 3 E-Safety - Hooked!

Following the responses that were received from the parent e-safety questionnaire Year 3 decided to focus their learning on playing online computer games. 

We shared our ideas on how amazing the internet was and how much we use it on a daily basis, especially for playing games.

After having the chance to explore on-line games the children discussed how they felt when being asked to stop.  The majority agreed that they felt they could go on playing games all day!  This led to our focus for the day, playing responsibly online.

We watched a brilliant video clip ‘Hooked’ http://www.bbc.co.uk/education/clips/z2gygk7 which led to a lot of discussion about

  • the need for age restriction of games
  • the importance of not accepting just anyone as an online gaming friend
  • the importance of limited time online and
  • missing out on other activities and opportunities.

 

Great ideas were shared about hobbies and the other activities that we could do.  In the end we decided that online games are fun to play but we made a pledge to spend less time playing games and more time on other fun activities.

 

E-safety day

In Year One we read the story 'Smartie the penguin' and talked about what Smartie should do when it came to different scenarios. We decided that when using the internet for playing on games and listening to music, if anything ever 'popped up' that we weren't sure about then we should get the help of an adult. We discussed the fact that this should be an adult who we know and trust. We used pastels to create a portrait of an adult that we would go to for help. We made masks so we could look like Smartie and we also acted out the story. 

E-Safety Day- May 2015

 

On Tuesday 5th May,  all children had the opportunity to learn how to keep safe online, as part of their second E-safety day of the year. Here at Callington Primary School, we are committed to ensuring that every child is not only aware of the dangers that face them, when using the internet but most importantly what they should do if they are faced with any of them. As appropriate to the age and the needs of the children in each year group, the risks they may face online were explored in a variety of meaningful ways. Now, we are certain that the children will be able to spot the warning signs of a range of online risks such as cyber bullying, coming across unknown or inappropriate material, age restricted games and hacking and security and therefore will be well equipped to deal with them in the safest way possible.

 

An insight into what each year group focused on for the day can be found below as well as an in depth description on their class pages on the website. At the very bottom of this page, you will find a range of links to websites which will provide you with further information on how to keep your child safe online.

Y6 E - Safety Day : Be Share Aware!

 

During our e-safety day this term, Year 6 have been focusing on the need to carefully consider the photos and information which they may share on electronic devices (including phones and social media). We discovered that as children, year 6 are often told to share but online it's different! In fact, sometimes sharing online can be dangerous which is why Purple 1 and 2 watched a video discussing the consequences of sharing a photo and learned why it is important to be 'SHARE AWARE' and keep safe online. To see of the work we produced as a result of our discussions look on our year group page.

Year 2 E - safety

 

 

White 1 and 2 discussed how to be a good friend on-line.  We looked at different "What if" scenarios thinking about how to keep ourselves safe when on line.  We all knew it was a good idea to exit the web page and always tell an adult.  Afterwards we listened to a story, "Digiduck's Big Decision" and discussed how to always be a good friend even on-line, being considerate of others' feelings.

In the afternoon we had lots of fun creating photo's and messages of our friends that we could share on-line.  We posted them in a box which represented the internet. We realised that once the message had been posted it would be unable to be completely removed, so it was really important that what we wrote was positive and we had their permission to post the picture online.  We also discovered that anyone would be able to see the messages as the web can be accessed from anywhere in the world.

 

 

Upper Foundation Stage E-Safety Day- May 2015

 

Red Classes spent the day looking at all of the devices they use to go on the internet. We found out that there are so many, including IPADS, IPODS, computers and laptops and Games consoles. Together we discussed what we used these devices for and most importantly, how to deal with some of the risks involved.  During our Busy Bee time, we partook in a range of activities where we could apply our new learning such as; designing and making safe and age appropriate website games for children to play, drawing pictures of the safe games and videos we already watch/play and writing rules to help children our age stay safe when using the internet. 

 

Together, we decided on these rules to keep safe online:

  • Always ask an adult if we want to use a device and only go on games or videos that they have agreed on
  • If something pops up that you are unsure about, press the x in the corner to close the window and tell an adult
  • Only go on the internet when an adult is supervising me
  • Never click on videos or links I haven't asked an adult about.

E-Safety Day 

Today Year One watched a 'How to stay safe online' video. We then wrote out our 'Staying safe top tips', made masks of ourselves and wrote about the things we should and shouldn't share online. We also talked about what we should do if we felt unsure or uncomfortable with a situation. We identified the adults that we can trust to share our personal information with.

Year Three- E-Safety Day May 2015

 

We looked at how to be a ‘good friend’ on the internet. We discussed scenarios and how we would deal with them safely, read the book ‘Digi-Duck’  and came up with ideas for how we could detect possible warning signs for unsafe behaviour online.
