'Everyone matters, every day counts'

 

With an ever changing world where “almost twice as many children aged 5-15 are going online via a tablet” in 2014 in  comparison with 2013, we, at Sir John Offley CE (VC) Primary School feel very strongly about providing up to date information to safe guard your child not just inside school, but outside too.

Research shows:
“65% of children often go online without any parental supervision.”
“Over a third of boys aged 5-15 who play games online play against someone not known to
them.”
“88% of the images and videos young people put up appeared on ‘parasite websites’, meaning they were taken from the original area where they were uploaded and made pupil on other websites.”
(Statistics taken from Ofcom—Children’s and parents: media use and attitudes 2014.)

The link below will take your child directly to the CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection) website for children, which gives up to date information and a place which anyone can use to report if they feel uncomfortable or worried about someone they are chatting to online.
