The use of online tools and resources are now routine within education and within school. There is also an expectation that pupils will complete at least some of their work online. Within school steps are taken to minimise inadvertent or inappropriate use of the internet or of electronic communications. Our internal precautions include:

  • An e-safety course taught as the first element of the Year 7 Computing curriculum
  • Updates during Computing lessons in Years 8 and 9 on this theme
  • Regular assemblies in all year groups about e-safety
  • The use of a highly secure ‘walled garden’ for online work managed by our service provider
  • Our own internal filtering, proxy server and firewall

There are some links below to advice about using the internet at home. We promote the use of online tools and resources, however there are some important safeguards that we advise parents to consider. They include:

  • Locating the family computer in a public place, preferably downstairs
  • Not allowing laptops (and even mobile phones) in bedrooms
  • Having clear rules about ‘offline’ time, for instance a time in the evening when phones and computers are turned off
  • Using software designed to restrict access to programmes and websites

CEOP helps keep children and young people safe from sexual abuse and grooming online. They help thousands of children and young people every year, as well as their parents and carers.

They can help and give you advice, and you can make a report directly to them if something has happened online which has made you feel unsafe, scared or worried. This might be from someone you know in real life, or someone you have only ever met online.
