New - Annual Online Safety Survey Report  2016-17

Every year, the schoool undertakes an anonymous survey for our children, to ascertain their Online habits. The results have been collated and are being acted upon. These are reflected in our curriculum, messages for the children, and in the way our staff remain aware of issues to react to when identified.

The report for this year is below. Please speak to Nigel Hooton (IT Leader) should you have and questions or comments regarding this.

If you are keen to learn more about protecting your child Online, we highly recomend Vodaphone's Digital Parenting E-Magazines, available HERE. The latest copy has an article on Digital Resilience, which is of particular interest.

Top Tips If Chatting Online:

(St Peter's does not encourage online chat, and prefers any communication between pupils to use the secure Learning Platform  tools)

  • Use a nickname online (not your real name) and a nickname that is not going to attract the wrong type of attention!
  • Meeting up with an online friend can be dangerous – if you really have to meet up with them speak to an adult and make sure that they go with you.
  • ALWAYS have a good look at the privacy settings of any spaces you post personal information on and make sure you know who can see or copy your stuff!
  • Look out for your friends online and do something if you think they are at risk.
  • Learn the SMART RULES and use them when you chat online! 
  • Treat your online space with respect – only allow your real life friends to link to you…if you haven’t met them in real life don’t link to them
  • Delete chainmails - they're just rubbish.
