Meadows First School recognises the importance of IT in education and the needs of pupils to access the computing facilities available within the School. The School aims to make the IT facilities it has available for pupils to use for their studies.
The Internet is a rich source of information and provides educational activities which are of great benefit to the children. However there are concerns about inappropriate materials and the school takes a range of measures to minimise these risks.
One concern is the unsuitable content that can be found on You Tube. Click here for a help sheet.

Their aim is to help you explore the online world safely as a family while learning and enjoying a range of digital activities together.
It is full of advice and information for parents on safely using the Internet with your children.
Also helpful is ParentInfo, which is a freely available resource which, following a simple registration, you can use to access e-safety information.
ParentInfo is a regularly updated and free feed of information, advice and sources of support for parents and carers.
ParentInfo is a collaboration between the National Crime Agency CEOP Command and The Parent Zone.
In line with Thinkuknow some of the content covers internet safety, but it all starts from the assumption that young people make little distinction between their online and offline lives. The aim is to help parents help their children be discriminating, web-literate and resilient.
