E-safety is an important part of keeping children safe at Linton Heights Junior School. We love using the internet and we appreciate what a valuable resource it is. We also teach our children about the risks that go alongside this. We encourage parents to also take an active role in their child's use of computers, phones and other technology. The policy that outlines our approach to e-safety is called the Internet and Acceptable Use Policy and can be found in the policy section of this website.
Information from Craig Thompson, E-learning Adviser from The ICT Service - follow up from the Parents E-Safety Evening on Tuesday 9th February:
Children using InstagramIt has come to our attention that lots of our children have Instagram accounts. It is our duty of care to make parents aware that the minimum age for Instagram is 13. There is a useful Parents' Guide to Instagram here: www.connectsafely.org/wp-content/uploads/instagram_guide.pdf
