Online Safety

Onslow Infant School are dedicated to ensuring children are kept safe at all times, including when using the Internet. At school, online safety is covered in a variety of ways through our computing curriculum. A whole school message is also shared to tell the children what to do if they see something that makes them feel uncomfortable:


If they are on a computer – turn the monitor off, if using a laptop – close the lid and if using a tablet – turn it over. The children are then told to get an adult. The NSPCC has lots of information on their website encouraging open discussion with your child at an early age:

  • Explore websites and apps together – take time to talk about keeping safe.
  • Talk about things they might see online which might make them feel uncomfortable. Remind your child to tell you if they see something that worries or upsets them.
  • Be share aware about what is okay and what is not ok to share online.
  • Take care with the information you share about your family online.

The Internet is an amazing resource for information and it provides a great space for children to have fun.
