All computers in the academy are web filtered to ensure appropriate websites are accessed and children are safe online. 

Being safe online means individuals are protecting themselves and others from online harms and risks which may jeopardise personal information, lead to unsafe communications or even effect mental health and wellbeing. 

Operating within an online space is something most of us simply do subconsciously, but we must consider the potential dangers which exist on the web, especially for our children.  The recent Ofcom ‘Children and Parents: media use and attitudes report 2019’ report found that children are more engaged online than they’ve ever been. Ownership of smart devices is increasing and the range of content they are viewing is expanding so it is important that we all play a part in promoting and keeping children safe online. 

It is possible that some children, unknown to their parents, can access inappropriate and offensive images via the internet using Google Sites and YouTube. We would strongly advise you monitor and talk to your child about what they access, and best practice would be to keep your computer/laptop in a family room, not a child’s bedroom. 

Below you will find our E-safety Policy and a range of tips and guides we have put together to make it easier for you to stay up to date with how to keep your child safe online.

This guide will help families manage apps and internet use to reduce the chance of children using a website, game or app that might not be appropriate for their age.
