At Farnborough Grange we take online safety very seriously. The children have access to a variety of technology so it is important that they know how to keep themselves safe when online. We teach online safety throughout the year and take part in national initiatives, such as, Safer Internet Day.

Safer Internet Day 2021
On Tuesday 9th February, we took part in Safer Internet Day, offering learning opportunities for children remotely and in school. Safer Internet Day is an annual event in the online safety calendar and it is now celebrated in approximately 170 countries worldwide. This year, keeping our children safe online is more important than ever due to the increased amount of time that children are spending online through their various devices. Whilst the online world has many benefits, it is important to consider the risks that it can pose to our children and how we can protect them from these risks.
This year's theme is "An internet we trust: Exploring reliability in the online world". Each year group team provided age-appropriate learning videos and activities for children to access at home and in school. Videos and activities can be accessed through Tapestry and ClassDojo in the same way as all other remote learning.
Alongside this, we also provided a pre-recorded online workshop with top tips on how you can keep your children safe when online. You can access this via our Facebook page as well as through Tapestry and ClassDojo. We hope that you will find this both supportive and useful. Of course, this would usually be offered as a face-to-face session with the opportunity to ask and answer questions. If you do have any questions or you would like further support, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will then contact you.
Please see below age-specific guides with top tips for keeping your children safe online.
Please look at the presentation below, shared at our Online Safety workshop, which gives extra guidance and support on keeping your children safe online.
