The Village Academy

The Village Academy is a group of town, city and village schools that have joined together to provide the very best education for the children in our care and where we believe that education is very much a matter of the individual.

E-Safety during Home Learning

Whilst children are accessing their learning at home, it is likely they will experience a lot more screen-time than in their normal day-to-day lives. The Internet and online world can be a  wonderful place, with interesting videos, educational and fun games, virtual excursions, the opportunity to chat with and see friends, and much more.

Unfortunately, there is also an other side to this online world, one that can creep up unexpectedly and pop onto your screen from nowhere.  

At school, we teach children what to do when something like that happens - Tell and show  an adult - but children do not always do this, either because they do not recognise the danger for what it is, they might feel embarrased or scared by what they have seen or they might think they have done something wrong and will get into trouble. This is where you come in.

It does not matter how computer-savy your child is (and in many cases, children know an awful lot more about apps and computer games than we do!), it is still important that you monitor what they do. Below you can find information and guidance that can help you with that. We will update the resources regularly, so make sure you check this page every now and then.

Stay safe, at home and online!
