Online Safety at Barton Clough
At Barton Clough we are committed to working together, with parents, to keep our children safe online. Through our curriculum we offer regular opportunities for children to explore age appropriate content about keeping safe online, alongside explicit sessions and workshops with Footlights and the NSPCC.
We held a well attended and successful 'Footlights e-Safety' workshop for parents at the start of February. This will be repeated later in the year to give more parents and carers the opportunity to attend.
In March all staff will received CEOPS accredited training around e-safety.
Our internet connectivity and technical support is purchased through Trafford Local Authority and we work closely with Trafford to ensure our systems, procedures and practice within school are effective. We are working hard to introduce individual log-ins for all children and to have a clear system for monitoring searches made on school computers.
Innocent searches online can lead to not so innocent results. But parental controls can help keep your child safe.
Parental controls are an important way to keep your child safe online.
Parental controls can be used to block upsetting or harmful content, control in-app purchases or manage how long your child spends online. And the good news is parental controls are really easy to set up.
Innocent searches sometimes reveal not so innocent results. So if you’re worried about what your child is searching for online, who they’re talking to or what they’re seeing, the NSPCC can help.
It’s simple to get started. And, along with talking to your child regularly, using parental controls is one of the best ways to help keep children safe online.
