Online Safety Support For The Home

At Oakhill Primary School we take safety on the Internet very seriously. On this page you will find videos to help support you in working with your child to stay safe on the Internet as well as activities that you could do with your child.


There are also links at the bottom of the page are for parents and carers to use to keep up to date with Online Safety.


At home you could support our work in keeping the children safe online by:

  • Exploring the interactive sites (at the bottom of the page) with your child
  • Watching the videos and sharing them (or the information from them) with your child as appropriate for their age.
  • Completing the activities together with your child.
  • Checking the sites your child accesses on tables and phones
  • Checking your childs text messages, photographs, Snapchat and Whatsapp regularly
  • Talking to your child about what they are doing online
  • Discussing the dangers of social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp, TikTok, Snapchat and Instagram and discuss with your child why these sites have an user age of 13

January 2024 Parents Session


The sessions are extremely well received with the feedback attached below. Some of the comments included:


"I would just like you to know the Webinar session tonight was very informative and a real eyeopner to what goes on in the online world....I'm so glad I signed up to watch it. Even though I know certain things go on online, I didn't realise how much!" (2023)


“As parents we need to see this. Eye opening to what we presume our children would not do. A Very big thank you” (2022)

“It was excellent and easy to follow. The gaming shocked me and my wife. Sorry to say, we have allowed our son to play GTA and COD online with his friends. We have spoken to him and he has agreed not to play them anymore. We have actually just sold them on eBay” (2022)

“VERY uncomfortable and even more worried that our young children can easily have access to this. This training should be compulsory for all parents. Highly recommended” (2022)


“I’m so happy the school invited me. We make more time for screen free activities and found it so much easier to talk about how they can stay safe. A very big thank you" (2021)

“This is something I would never have thought about. Very important we know what our children are doing. Excellent session and so helpful” (2021)

“Me and my wife found the webinar powerful and such an eye-opener. We have reviewed all our parental settings on our devices since the session” (2021)


Skips website also has lots of further useful information including excellent parent guides:
