Safeguarding - online safety
For AET pupils accessing remote learning:
- Pupils should follow the instructions here to log into their g suite account and access their google classroom set up by their teacher.
- Please ensure wherever possible, that pupils have had a chance to practice this at school, before trying on a device at home.
- If pupils have forgotten their password, they should use this link here
- By logging into g suite, or Chromebook, any online activity can be tracked through eSafe and any exposure to unsuitable exposure to dangerous or inappropriate material, either accidental or intentional can be quickly identified and actioned.
- Pupils and parents must be reminded of the ICT code of conduct in place with regards to password and account security; appropriate use of the internet.
- The classroom must be accessed in an appropriate space at home i.e. not a bedroom.
- Pupils must be appropriately dressed throughout.
- Where pupils are receiving one to one online tuition through ‘My Tutor’ for example, it is highly recommended that a family member or carer is present throughout the tutorial session.
- Remind pupils about how to stay safe online and ensure that parents are directed to safer internet guidance e.g.
