E-Safety

At Brantridge, we have a strong focus on E-safety and keeping pupils safe online. Each year, the pupils learn about ways to keep safe online, safe researching and about viruses and spam. This coincides with ‘Safer internet day’, which occurs in February.

We hold yearly training for parents on keeping their children safe online. The safeguarding team meet regularly and discuss issues regarding pupil safety including E-safety and pupils accessing age inappropriate materials.

Pupils in Neptune class have been earning digital badges in E-safety on idea.org.uk. iDEA is a programme that helps you develop digital and enterprise skills for free. Through our series of online challenges and events, pupils can win career-enhancing badges, unlock new opportunities and, ultimately, gain industry recognised awards that help you stand out from the crowd.

At school, we use a web filtering system to prevent the pupils from accessing anything they should not. If you would like help in setting up some filters at home, which can help protect your children online, we would recommend having a look at the straightforward instructions from Internet Matters – an organisation dedicated to keeping children safe in the digital world.

The UK Council for Child Internet Safety (UKCCIS) is a group of more than 200 organisations drawn from across government, industry, law, academia and charity sectors that work in partnership to help keep children safe online. They provide advice and guidance for Schools and colleges.

You can find more information on the NSPCC website and the Thinkuknow sites.
