Trust Guidance

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.
