Safety online and in the community.

E-safety at Lakefield

Internet accessible technology is changing rapidly and becoming increasingly important in the daily lives of children.  The use of mobile phones, games consoles and social networks are all are being used, both educationally and socially, and can be hugely beneficial to children.

Within school, we provide a safe and secure online environment, however, due to the interaction that children can partake in, and the fact that these communications can take place anywhere, we are aware that internet safety issues may arise outside of school. If you have a concern regarding an online safety issue, please contact us at the following email address: esafety@lakefield.gloucs.sch.uk

Parent Info

Parent Info provides high quality information to parents and carers about their children's wellbeing and resilience. Schools can host the content on their own website and use it in any other ways (in letters to parents etc) that they want.

This service is free and ranges across a wide range of subject matter, from difficult topics about sex, relationships and the internet or body image and peer pressure to broader parenting topics like ‘how much sleep do teenagers need?’

In line with CEOP’s Thinkuknow programme, some of the content covers internet safety, but it all starts from the assumption that young people make little distinction between their online and offline lives and the issues for parents are often the same. The aim is to help parents help their children be discriminating, web-literate and resilient.

Find out what’s good, what’s not and what you can do about it. If you look after young people there’s an area for you too – with resources you can use in the classroom or at home. Most importantly, there’s also a place which anyone can use to report if they feel uncomfortable or worried about someone they are chatting to online.

NSPCC Parental controls

Parental controls are an important way to keep your child safe online.

Parental controls can be used to block upsetting or harmful content, control in-app purchases or manage how long your child spends online.
