Online Safety

Mrs V Moore
e-Safety Coordinator

At Archbishop Sentamu Academy we work to educate our pupils about online safety.

Staff at the academy discuss and teach the pupils about appropriate behaviours and work to enable pupils to remain safe and legal when using the internet and any other related technologies.

We think that pupils need to be provided guidance regarding online safety regularly.

At Archbishop Sentamu Academy we embed online safety throughout the academy and within the curriculum. We believe it is as important to educate the pupils as it is to continually refresh staff on potential online issues and how to remain safe and legal online.

Parent Controls

Smartphones and other devices

Children are using devices at a younger age so it’s important to consider setting controls on their tech, or on any devices that you are letting them borrow from you. We’ve pulled together a number of guides to give you simple steps to set controls on a range of devices.

E-Safety resources for parents

Archbishop Sentamu Academy’s online safety policy is in place to ensure that necessary and relevant measures are embedded to protect pupils and staff who are working with ICT equipment and other technologies.

The policy is to assist school staff working with children to work safely and responsibly with the Internet and other communication technologies and to monitor their own and pupils’ standards and practice.

Our responsibility is to set high expectations for our pupils using communication technologies and to maintain a consistent approach to online safety.

E-Safety Tips for Parents is a not-for-profit organisation that has a simple purpose – to help keep children safe in the digital world.

Be Share Aware –
Keep your child safe online

We tell our children it’s good to share – but online it’s different. In fact sometimes sharing online can be dangerous. Being Share Aware will help keep your child safe online.

Watch and share a short film and take a look at some straightforward advice that will untangle the web, and give parents confidence in talking to their children about how to stay safe online.
