Remote learning - top tips for children
There are lots of great articles and websites you can access here that relate to online safety, but we would like to draw your attention specifically to the parent summary, which is the last link in the list. It gives you so many useful hints and tips that you can look at and use with your children, such as:
How children (and adults!) can create an effective and safe password
A reminder regarding the age children can make use of various apps, such as What’sApp (which is 16!)
SMART is a great acronym to share with your children to support safe practice on the Internet:
S – Stands for SAFE and reminds children to keep their personal information safe, not sharing it with strangers
M – means that children should not MEET with people they have met online
A – stands for being very careful about ACCEPTING friend requests or invitations to click on links online when you are not aware of what this might enable
R – reminds us that we cannot always RELY on the truth, safety or integrity of content we find on the internet (this is something that children also explore as part of their IT learning in school)
T – reminds children to TELL someone if they see something inappropriate or worrying online; this might mean telling a trusted adult or contacting a trusted website, such as CEOP.
Please click this link, if it’s helpful, at the following blog with advice specifically regarding something upsetting being witnessed online by your child. ‘Don’t get mad; get curious’ is a great piece of advice here that is sometimes very hard to follow! There are lots of great ideas here that may help you as parents, if this has already happened, or if it does happen to you or someone that you know.
Whilst we would recommend that you continue to work in partnership with the school in terms of catching up any gaps that may have opened or widened with your child as a result of the lockdown, we understand that some parents may want to consider taking on a tutor. With this in mind, we would like to draw your attention to this document which details how this may be done safely and effectively with skilled, registered tutors. We hope you find this useful.
Staying safe in the darker evenings
We are already into darker evenings, since the clocks have gone back. Please take a look at this guidance for parents to help children to be seen at night:
Also please do consult this guidance to support parents to teach children – of all ages – how to be safe on and near the roads, whether it’s light or dark outside. It explains how to cross the road safely and also reminds children – and parents - of the Green Cross Code.
We want to encourage our children to continue the great habits that some were able to develop during lockdown, such as cycling, scooting, walking or even skateboarding for exercise and also to save the planet when travelling. Take a look at this link which is a great E-poster that shows children how to social distance in a skateboarding park! There must be at least a few Grange Park children who like to skateboard from A to B and also enjoy practising tricks and stunts in a skate park!
