Online Safety

What is Online Safety?

Online Safety highlights the importance of educating our children about the benefits, risks and responsibilities of using a variety of technology both in and out of school. It promotes safeguarding of children and young people in the digital world. It makes sure that children know how to use technology in a safe and positive way.

At school your child is protected when accessing the internet:

  • Children are taught about appropriate content during Computing lessons.
  • There is Internet filtering through the Birmingham Firewall.
  • Forensic software on our school network system captures screen shots and logs inappropriate use.
  • Virus Protection.

Also see our Online Safety Policy on our Policies and Documents page.
