Keeping your Children Safe Online

At Reckleford we believe that technology can be a fantastic part of children’s learning and development.

To use technology safely children need to learn the rules and families need to talk to each other about what they do with it.

To make sure children are safe online:

Children must

 Talk about what I do online and the technology I use

 Show my adult what I do online

 Check before I download a new app

 Share games I play

 Join in with family activities


Adults must

 Stay calm when problems happen with technology

  • Watch your child’s online activity

 Ask permission before posting photos of family

 ensure apps and games are age appropriate for your children

 Join in with technology activities


Everyone agrees to

 Family time without technology

 Switch off at an agreed time each night

 Talk about what we do online, just as we do with other

 Keep screens out of bedrooms
