At Star Academy we teach our children the importance of staying safe in today’s online world.

In the academy, we use a filtering system to prevent children accessing inappropriate sites. We also teach lessons on  ‘e-safety’  to remind children of the importance of keeping themselves safe online.

At home, sometimes children can be given unsupervised access to the Internet. This, potentially, allows them to access all kinds of society (both good and bad) and bring them virtually into their homes.

To support our community in keeping Star children safe here are some links to useful sites and links to offer guidance and support.

Please remember it is possible to report abuse and exploitation direct to CEOP following the CEOP link on the home page.

In the academy we have 2 Digital Leaders in each class Year 2 to Year 6. These pupils remind their class mates to stay safe on-line and give out key messages each week around E-safety. They also form part of the E safety working group here in the academy.

A family agreement is a great way to start a conversation as a whole family about how the internet should be used safely and responsibly when online at home, at school or at a friend’s house.

To support parents in creating a family agreement Childnet International have put together some free advice and a helpful family agreement template for families to use as a starting point.

Please find below two documents to help you create your own family agreement.
