Home Learning & Staying Safe
At Hall Green Infant School we take online safety very seriously. Our children have completed lessons around how to stay safe and who they talk to if they don’t feel safe.
Home learning is very different to school and they may need a refresher! You may have a number of children of all different ages to support all at the same time. This page is here to help you, the parent. There are some helpful links for mindfulness and some links to help with online safety. Always remember to monitor your child whilst online and to ensure they are in the same room as a trusted adult that they can talk to.
During this time our children will be using the internet and working with apps more so during this period of home learning. It is essential we remind them about how we stay safe. Click here to access a PowerPoint to help you and you child or children refresh their learning about online safety. There are links for all ages so you can go through this will all your children.
Go through the appropriate PowerPoint and discuss what you might do at your house to stay safe while your online. Take some time to discuss how to stay safe by following the online safety rules.
Perhaps make a poster together about how you will staying safe online at your house!
