Online Safety - Stay Safe online

Our pupils are growing up in a world of ever-changing technology. While we feel that the use of technology is a largely positive aspect of modern life, we cannot ignore the risks that can be associated.

Throughout school we aim to teach children:

  • about the impact of cyber-bullying and what to do if they have been affected.
  • to be vigilant when communicating online recognising that people may not always be who they say they are and to be sensible about what they share.
  • to tell an adult they trust if something is upsetting them.
  • to question the reliability of information given through a web based source.
  • to search responsibly for information while using internet browsers.

We understand that much of our pupil's use of the internet will occur at home, away from the school filters.

The internet has changed all of our lives, particularly our children’s. Pupils have regular lessons about keeping safe online, where they are taught about the benefits, but also the dangers of using the internet. You might be struggling to keep up with the things your child is doing online, you might wonder whether what they are doing is safe, and you might also be thinking 'How can I be as good a parent online as I am offline?' 

 

This part of the website aims to teach parents what their children may be doing online and offers advice on how to keep them as safe as possible when using the internet

 

Online safety encompasses Internet technologies and electronic communications such

as mobile phones as well as collaboration tools and personal publishing. It highlights the

need to educate pupils about the benefits and risks of using technology and provides

safeguards and awareness for users to enable them to control their online experience.

 

The Schools' Online Safety Policy reflects the need to raise awareness of the safety issues associated with electronic communications as a whole.  Online Safety depends on effective practice at a number of levels. Responsible ICT use by all staff and students; encouraged by education and made explicit through published policies. Sound implementation of Online Safety policy in both administration and curriculum,including secure school network design and use.
