Online Safeguarding 

Online Safety is about staying safe on the internet. Internet enabled devices such as computers, tablets and smart phones offer lots of new opportunities, but also present new risks.


In school we proactively filter internet access to ensure that the children are not exposed to any inappropriate or adult material. If you are a customer of BT, Sky, TalkTalk or Virgin Media you can follow this guide to set-up parental controls on your internet access.

The Children's Code came into effect in September 2021 – requiring all online platforms that could be accessed by UK under-18s to legally follow several key data principles preventing them from negatively impacting children’s privacy. 

This includes accounts for under-16s that must now be set to ‘private’ by default, have geo-location disabled, and all privacy-related information presented in a way that children can understand.
