Our recent parent survey showed that 77% of those that responded said their child used a tablet as the most common way to access the internet. During the survey we did with the children 13% said they used the internet for more than 4 hours a day. Please see the guidance below about screen time and why it is important to make sure children take a break!
Our recent parent survey showed that 98% of those that responded said that their child had access to the internet at home. We also surveyed the children. One of the most popular apps they mentioned using was Netflix. Please see the guide below as a reminder of the important internet safety issues when your child is using this app and how you can ensure they are using it appropriately.

Internet Safety Resources
Internet safety resources for parents/carers following our online safety parent workshop.
The children and staff at Brockswood Primary School are able to access the Internet through the Hertfordshire Grid for Learning (HGfL).
The HGfL is a service currently supplied to all Hertfordshire Local Authority Schools.
The eSafety of children when using the Internet is of paramount importance to the school and we follow the latest advice of HfL to inform our policies and practice.
We know that parents and carers will also be very concerned that their children are protected and safe when using the Internet. The HfL website has a section dedicated to eSafety with advice to children, parents and carers, governors and school staff. The parent support section can be found at:
For details on our approach to online safety, please read Brockwood’s Online Safety Policy.
At Brockswood and Primary and Nursery School we are fully committed to the safeguarding of pupils and take e-Safety very seriously. With the support of parents, we pro-actively teach our pupils how to keep themselves safe online.
During the Spring Term, the children learn all about how to stay safe online as part of Internet Safety Day.
