Keeping Children Safe Online
Priory Woods School & Arts College takes the issue of Internet Safety very seriously for our students, staff and parents.
We also are aware of our responsibility to keep our young people safe from Radicalisation and Extremism.
We acknowledge that the Internet is a fantastic tool and we encourage our students to take full advantage of it. Although there are dangers our responsibility is to work alongside parents and other professional bodies to make sure our young people use the Internet safely.
To keep our students, staff and parents safe we:
- Deliver sessions on keeping safe on the Internet for students (where applicable)
- Make sure the school network has up to date security and filter system
- Give all staff yearly training on E-Safety
- Make sure all staff follow the Prevent Duty Guidance and are aware of the signs of radicalisation and extremism and receive training on how to deal with this
- Have a E-Safety Committee comprising of ICT Coordinator, teaching staff, technician, a member of the management team and a school Governor
- Offer Internet safety sessions to our parents
