Online Safety

At Brookwood we believe that children should be educated to make the right choices online and become responsible users of technology.

For this reason, although we restrict their access to inappropriate material through filters appropriate for primary schools, we encourage them to use the internet and explore its content.

When children first join our school, and at the beginning of each school year, the children will be asked to sign a form to say that they will comply with the school rules on the use of the Internet and e-mail. We also teach a unit of Esafety at the start of the academic year to ensure all children are up to date on how to stay safe when using the internet.

In addition to this we hold events where parents can learn about the benefits of using technology to enhance learning but also to educate parents on how to keep their children safe online. Additional information can be found on the THINKUKNOW.CO.UK and PARENT ZONE websites. These sites are freely available services launched by CEOP and Parent Zone which provide the most up-to-date content aimed at parents. The content is written by leading experts in their fields and covers pornography to eating disorders, sexting to violent extremism.

We work in partnership with parents, providing opportunities to attend workshops, focusing on key aspects of online safety - please see under 'downloads' a link to an Online Safety powerpoint presentation.

Please find below the Online Safety Guides emailed to parents on a weekly basis covering a variety of topics that schools, parents and carers should be aware of.
