Online Safety

e-Safety is an important part of keeping children safe at Silverhill. We have extensive security measures in place in school, which are monitored both internally and externally, to help safeguard pupils from potential dangers or unsuitable material. Any e-Safety incidents are recorded and managed.  e-Safety is taught to all pupils explaining and demonstrating how to stay safe and behave appropriately online.​

We can only be successful in keeping children safe online if we work with parents to ensure the e-Safety message is consistent. It is important that parents speak to their children about how they can keep safe and behave appropriately online.​

Children gain a great deal of fun from playing on the various gadgets and tablets but it is important to ensure you have the correct settings on devices and that games are age appropriate. This will help to prevent any unwelcome communication with your child.​

It's essential to be realistic - banning the internet or technology will not work and it often makes a child less likely to report a problem. Education around safe use is essential.​
