E-Safety & Safe Access via Warrington BC Web Filtering

Pupils interact with the Internet and other communication technologies, such as mobile phones on a daily basis and this can occasionally place them in danger. In school, we teach them to 'surf safely' and be aware of the information they give on-line.

The schools’ web filtering service provides a filter for staff and learners preventing them from accessing potentially harmful online content. The service intercepts all internet traffic from the school’s curriculum network which connects via the WBC broadband circuit. Further details can be accessed via the document at the top of this page. Please have a look at some of the sites listed below, to make you aware of some of the issues and teach your child how to be safe.

Here are our E-Safety Rules for staying safe on-line;
 

  • Never give out personal information.
  • Tell a grown-up if you find something that is not right.
  • Never agree to meet people and never send your picture.
  • If someone says something mean online, tell a grown-up.
  • Don’t do things online that you know are wrong.
  • Check before you download anything.
  • Don’t give out your password.
  • Show your parents and carers how you use the Internet.

SMART - This site illustrates Childnet's SMART rules and gives guidance on how to stay safe on-line.

KID SMART - This is a fun, interactive website that gives advice about using a range of technologies from downloading music to using a chat room.

THINK U KNOW - This site is particularly good for younger children. It provides information through videos and interactive games. There is also a feature that allows you to Report Abuse via CEOP if your child visits a site that you feel is inappropriate.
