Online Safety

At Park Primary e-safety is a very important part of Park life.

We asked the children to complete a survey of the technology they use at home to help us understand what devices they are aware of and how they use them. Please look below to see our findings.

  • Across the school mobile phones were most popular way of using the internet.
  • Ipads were quite common
  • Nearly all children had internet access
  • Internet is used most commonly in bedrooms and family rooms
  • The most popular reason for using the internet was playing games (followed by finding information).
  • Lots of children are using Skype
  • Some popular website are on the next page. Websites linked to TV channels were quite popular (especially with the younger children).

Please find a downloadable copy of the presentation here.
