Online Safety at Coleman Primary
At Coleman Primary School, we take the children’s safety on the internet very seriously. To support our parents, we have put together some tips, advice, guides and resources to help you keep your child safe whilst online.
"As a parent or carer, you play a key role in helping your child to stay safe online.
You don’t need to be an expert on the internet to help keep your child stay safe online. Our advice and resources are here to support you as you support your child to use the internet safely, responsibility and positively."(UK Safer Internet Centre)
What is Online harmful content?
The grid below shows common threats from online harmful content. The ‘4 Cs’ are the different stages at which children can be affected:
Content – What the child may be seeing online.
Contact – What might be being sent to a child.
Conduct – What the child may be doing themselves online.
Contract – Where children may be being exploited.
The cross-cutting headings are in each stage.

Ask them about how they stay safe online.
What tips do they have for you, and where did you learn them?
What is ok and not ok to share?
