Online Safety

 

Online-safety continues to be a key priority for our school. With more pupils than ever gaining access to technology, and at an ever-earlier age, we want to work in partnership with our families and community to ensure children are using it in a safe, positive and responsible manner. 

Technology provides new learning opportunities – online collaboration, anytime anywhere learning and communication – but at the same time can provide additional opportunities for pupils to access material they should not, or be treated by others inappropriately. Our curriculum has a clear focus on online safety and shows pupils how to protect themselves from harm, particularly concerning cyber-bullying and dealing with strangers online. 

 

At Forestdale we understand a range of factors keep children safe online:

 

All breaches of online safety must be reported immediately to either the class teacher, the head teacher or the online safety officer safeguarding@forestdale.croydon.sch.uk.

Any illegal online activity must be reported to the police at ceop (the national crime agency's child protection command) www.ceop.police.uk/safety-centre
