As an academy we are ambitious for our students that they would be confident using the internet safety and wisely. However we also take E-Safety very seriously due to the risks posed from a variety of sources to our students. Carlton Keighley uses “Smoothwall” monitoring of all academy devices to filter and monitor internet usage. We also have a strict Mobile Phone Policy which forbids the use of phones in the academy so that students can focus on their learning and to protect our students from cyberbullying.
As parents/ carers it is crucial that you are having ongoing conversations about your child’s use of the internet and social media. Please encourage an open dialogue about who they are speaking to, the content being discussed and shared and what they should do if they are concerned by harmful behaviour online/ inappropriate content or any other communication they experience.
Please find a variety of resources which may be useful to parents/ carers regarding your child’s E-Safety.
