Online Safety & Prevent Duty

Scotts Primary School is fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all its pupils. Every member of staff recognises that safeguarding against radicalisation and extremism is no different to safeguarding against any other vulnerability in today’s society.

Our Child Protection and Online Safety Policies sets out our beliefs, strategies and procedures to protect vulnerable individuals from being radicalised or exposed to extremist views, by identifying who they are and promptly providing them with support.

Online Safety Conservations with Children

New research suggests children are using social media before parents have spoken to them about how to use it responsibly, with 48% being exposed to it by age seven.

To help parents have these important conversations with their children at a younger age, Vodafone UK and Andersen Press have teamed up with award-winning author Jeanne Willis and illustrator Tony Ross to produce a co-branded digital edition of #Goldilocks. The book is a modern twist on the classic fairy tale and offers a fun and accessible way for parents to discuss responsible social media use with their younger children.

The book sees #Goldilocks getting into trouble with the three bears over her pursuit of likes on social media. It aims to help educate children about the potential consequences of being unkind, getting carried away with selfies or oversharing images in a light-hearted way.

Download #Goldilocks along with a fun activity sheet for free below or visit Vodafone Digital Parenting - https://www.vodafone.co.uk/mobile/digital-parenting/goldilocks)
