e-Safety & Safeguarding

e-Safety is the term used in schools to describe the steps taken by children and adults to remain safe when working with the Internet or using a mobile phone responsibly.

Parent-Factsheet – Online resources and information for parents

Supporting young people online –  Information and Advice for parents and carers

We take the safety of our students seriously and have systems in place to ensure their safety whilst using the internet in school. This includes educating children to the risks of online social interaction both in Computing lessons and PHSCE lessons.  Our school internet connection is filtered and we make use of anti-virus and other security software to minimise risk. We advise parents/carers to talk with their children about using the Internet and mobile phones in a safe way. You can report any concern about unsafe internet content by clicking on the button below.

Communication systems such as social networks, blogs, mobile phones and email have become increasingly important in our daily lives and often have important benefits but, as we all know, there are also risks to be considered and evaluated. Access to the Internet can take place almost anywhere at anytime and it is important that students, teachers and parents are aware of the risks and know how to use modern technologies appropriately and are able to discuss the issues in school, at home and between friends and what actions to take when something goes wrong.

 

CEOP

Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) ceop.police.uk “CEOP works with child protection partners across the UK and overseas to identify the main threats to children and coordinates activity against these threats to bring offenders to account. CEOP protects children from harm online and offline, both directly and in partnership with local and international agencies.”

Here are some tips and useful links to help you to keep your children safe online:

  • Explore e-safety sites
    There are lots of links to useful e-safety sites for children.  We have a few at the bottom of this page. They are great fun to explore, so why not browse through them with your children?
  • Facebook / Bebo / Myspace
    Many of these social networking sites have a minimum age limit of 13, so our pupils should NOT be using them.  They allow children to communicate with anyone.
    The link below gives you a guide to the social networks your children may be using. Stay up to date and keep your child safe in today’s digital world…It’s really important!

  • Keep your computer in a shared area
    Talk to your child about what they are doing online and, if possible, set up your computer in a shared area at home so that you can all share in the wonderful sites that are available online
