Internet Safety information

Charlestown Primary School supports children and families in pursuing safe online activities.  Pupils are introduced to e-safety in Year 1 and learning is progressive, reflecting the children’s increasing abilities and understanding of the cyber world.

Annual Internet Safety sessions during Internet Safety Week focus on issues from basic safety (eg. non-disclosure of personal information) to child sexual exploitation. Guidance is given about the use of social media sites and positive behaviour online.

The resources used are produced by CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre) and Childnet International.

Further sessions take place throughout the year depending upon the work being conducted by pupils and any issues arising that present cyberbullying, exploitation or unsafe activity. Cyberbullying is reflected in our Anti-bullying policy, procedures.


The school recommends the following websites to parents seeking further information.
