What are your children accessing online?

atMrs Lyons from Bolton SICT was in school today meeting with our parent and sharing the importance of online safety. There was lots of discussion around how, the length of time and the sort of content our children access, especially where there are specific age restrictive guidelines.

We were shown how to set parental controls, websites that can support families if they had concerns and how to report inappropriate content if the needed.

Welcome to St Michael’s School Blog

Welcome2What is a blog?  …

“Blog” is an abbreviated version of “weblog,” which is a term used to describe web sites that maintain an ongoing chronicle of information. A blog features diary-type commentary and links to articles on other Web sites and can focus on one narrow subject or a whole range of subjects…

Each of our year groups will have access to their own class blog where the pupils will share their learning and will be able to develop their writing skills as they will be writing for a wider audience.

Do feel free to comment on the children’s writing and ideas, one thing to be aware of is that all comments will be moderated before going live on the site .

Thank you for your support and happy blogging!
