At School

At school we take several steps to ensure that children are kept safe while using the internet and electronic communication.

  • We use targeted filtering to prevent access to websites that are not suitable or may be dangerous.
  • Internet access in supervised and we monitor the websites that are accessed.
  • We use a controlled email system where we monitor the children’s emails and we limit the addresses that children can communicate with. These steps are taken protect the children from unsuitable emails and identify possible cyber bullying.
  • Children are also taught how to use the technology safely so that they can keep themselves safe.

At Home

We appreciate parents can have a difficult job keeping up with their children on the fast changing technology available to them, let alone knowing the dangers they face. The issues of safety, privacy, online predators or grooming and cyberbullying are sometimes complex, both technically and psychologically and parents can struggle to keep up.

To help parents we have put together a selection of links to websites that will help them to ensure that their children can reap the benefits of the Internet while staying safe.
