KEEP YOUR CHILD SAFE ONLINE

Due to current events children are spending more time online, both in their free time as well as distant learning. On this page you'll be able to find information on how you can keep your child safe when online. 

DISTANT LEARNING

Monitoring and Safeguarding

Where students have access to electronic devices, teachers will monitor students through their attendance at Google Meet virtual lessons and through the submission of scheduled assignments. If teachers have concerns for students as a result of non-attendance or non-submission, the class teacher or Head of year will contact parents in the first instance.

Keeping Safe Whilst Remote Learning 

  • If students are asked to join a third party educational site with an email address they should use their school address not their personal one.

  • Login details should be kept private and not to be shared with others.

  • If a chat function is available students must remember to use appropriate language, and email the teacher if they want a message to be private​

  • When on a video call they should make sure not to share personal information such as birthdays, locations or phone numbers.

  • Make sure your home internet/network is safe and secure, with a password on your router. This way people nearby can't access your network and download viruses or access your personal information.

  • Use an anti-virus software and parental control.

STAYING SAFE ONLINE

Chatrooms

As students can't see their friends in person, they may turn to online chats. To stay safe children shouldn't give out personal information, they should block people they don't know, report  and change their details if they feel uncomfortable at any point

Tips on E-safety

  • Keep personal details out of usernames. Information that hint to a students details such as birthday, locations or last names should be avoided.

  • Check age restrictions and make sure children are viewing and playing what is correct for their age range.

  • Chat with your child about appropriate behaviour and how cyberbullying isn't acceptable.

  • Talk with your child about safe searching and how some content can be harmful. There are parent filter control apps that you can look into that help block harmful searches appear.

  • Children should understand what shouldn't be tolerated and If someone isn’t treating them respectfully, they should remember they don’t have to stay friends with them.

  • Take a look at this article on being social online
