Staying Safe Online
Safety on the Web
The Pinvin Federation of Schools encourages parents and children to visit the CEOP www.thinkuknow.co.uk to keep you and your friends safe with Hector Protector and his friends. Security on our computer system is a high priority.
The Pinvin Federation of Schools encourages parents and children to visit the CEOP website (Child Exploitation & Online Protection)www.thinkuknow.co.uk to build knowledge of how to stay safe online;. This website has lots of fun activities which children can gain vital information on staying safe.
We also have regular visits across the federation from the NSPCC who talk to the children about the importance of communication around issues such as online safety, but also different aspects of emotional, physical and sexual abuse. More information on the NSPCC can be found here
Internet access is filtered by our Internet Service Provider (ISP) but ultimately, parents and guardians of minors are responsible for setting and conveying the standards that their children should follow when using media and information sources. We also have a secondary filtering provided by a dedicated internet server/router. This provides additional filtering which allows the children to only view certain pages. In addition, because the Internet is constantly evolving, the schools use a monitoring system which instantly flags up any inappropriate content to staff, who are therefore able to keep the children safe, both reactively and proactively.
