At The Galfrid School we encourage parents to embrace the digital world and to have an open and positive relationship with their child about how they should use it and how they can remain safe at all times.
Please don’t hesitate to approach your child’s class teacher if you have any concerns or would like some advice as all school staff undertake training on how to keep pupil’s safe using digital technology.
CEOP's Thinkuknow is a great website for parents and children and helps by providing education about sexual abuse and sexual exploitation.It provides practical information and educational resources to help raise awareness.
If your child receives unpleasant messages from another pupil at the school, please report this to their class teacher immediately. We would encourage you not to delete any messages, so that they can be used as evidence to help the school address the issue.
Unsure about PEGI game ratings?
Ratings are given to games from the Pan European Game Information (PEGI) system. In Cambridgeshire, we are increasingly made aware of children who have access to games rated above their actual age.
Children increasingly put pressure on their parents for access to websites and games above their age limitations. Below, you will find some information about PEGI ratings, an article about the importance of them and a link to Childnet International's support page for parents about online gaming which includes information on minimising risks online, the importance of PEGI ratings and ways to work with children regarding these issues.
Webwise have a range of video and guides to help children and parents to get connected and develop the online skills. They also have fantastic advice for other young people who might be struggling with online pressures and bullying.
