E-Safety for Parents

Knightsfield School is committed to using technology to enhance the learning experience of its pupils. We take e-safety very seriously and have systems and procedures in place to protect pupils and staff. All pupils are taught how to keep themselves safe online in PSHCE and ICT lessons. We hold regular assemblies on current issues to make pupils aware of the dangers and to remind them of the strategies to keep themselves safe. Our school Internet server monitors and filters content of web pages and all use of the Internet is logged. All pupils and parents sign the acceptable use of ICT agreement and a log is kept of any e-safety incidents which are reported to us. All staff and governors have completed e-safety training which is updated on an annual basis.

It is important that your deaf child should stay safe when using ICT outside school. Deaf children can be vulnerable  because of the language difficulties they have associated with their deafness. Here are some websites which will help you to help your deaf child to stay safe. If you are worried about something you can contact the school for advice.

You can use the CEOP button if you need to report abuse.
