Online Safety

Using Technology in School

Children have access to filtered internet to support their learning in school. Teachers or support staff are present when children are asked to access the internet and monitor the internet use. 

Internet sites accessed are monitored by SoftEgg technicians and cause for concern is communicated to the Trust. 

• In KS1, pupils access only sites approved by an adult and an adult always monitors Internet use. 

• In KS2, pupils access a wider range of sites and an adult is always present. 

• Pupils must not access personal chat rooms. 

• If pupils access inappropriate sites by accident, they must tell an adult 

• Pupils are taught to be aware that at some point, they are likely to access inappropriate sites by accident, and they must tell an adult. 

• If pupils deliberately access inappropriate sites, sanctions will apply

• Pupils are aware that their Internet usage is monitored by staff. Pupils must not enter personal data onto the Internet.

• Children in Years 3 - 6 have an ICT contract to sign annually. 

Further information about what children are being asked to do online/who interacting with should be communicated through Google classroom, as and when it occurs.

CEOP is a command of the National Crime Agency, and is dedicated to tackling the sexual abuse and exploitation of children and young people. CEOP is here to help young people (up to age 18) who have been forced or tricked into taking part in sexual activity with anyone online or in the real world. We also offer advice and links to support in response to other online problems young people might face, such as cyberbullying or hacking. For information, advice and to report concerns directly to CEOP, visit the Safety Centre by clicking on the Click CEOP button link.



Child sexual exploitation (CSE) is a type of sexual abuse. Children may be in exploitative situations and relationships receiving something such as gifts in exchange for sexual activities. They may be groomed and exploited online, trafficked into or within the UK. It can also happen to young people in gangs. More information can be found at the link below.
