E-Safety and Digital Literacy

Parent's Guide to Sharing Images

At TMSS we understand that it is essential to encourage and develop the use of new technologies in our teaching and learning practice.  The internet has changed the way we learn, interact and communicate so this technology is to be embraced. However, we must also be aware of the potential dangers including the fact that the internet can be used for malicious and criminal purposes.


At school, the secure ICT network prevents children accessing inappropriate information and blocks websites that are not necessary for their learning e.g Facebook and Twitter. However, we are aware that parents may not have the same security settings in the home environment. Parents must also be aware that children can access internet services via mobile telephones and video games systems.  We have provided links below to some information  about the ways you can ensure your child is practising e-safety. We also hope this will be a starting point for you to talk to your children about the need to keep safe online and that they will feel they can tell you about anything that worries them.

A comperehnsive parent's guide to online safety with useful links to trusted websites.
