Online Safety

Monitoring online activity 

 

We monitor students' use of the internet by using filters and monitoring systems (Securus). Securus is monitoring software that can monitor a wide range of devices. It monitors against an inbuilt library of keywords and phrases organised into categories with each one given a default severity rating. 

The library is developed in partnership with a number of charities and specialist organisations within law enforcement and child protection. The programme monitors both online and offline material and recognises inappropriate or harmful content, words, and phrases.

A screen shot (known as a ‘capture’) plus other details is taken of every incident triggered, showing what was displayed at the time, who was involved and when the incident took place.  This information is shared with the DSL, Mrs Simpson, Principal, Ms Samad, and Vice Principal, Mr Henry, allowing Academy staff to implement further actions or interventions as required. 

 

Online safety advice for students

 

Support for children:

 

Online safety advice for parents and carers

 

Parental support:

Although the Academy teaches students online safety as part of the curriculum, it is vital that parents/carers are aware of the risks too, and what they can do to develop a culture of online safety in the home.

For any concerns about a child's online safety, there is always someone at the Academy who is available to support. Simply call the Academy and ask for the DSL, Mrs Simpson, or speak to any member of staff.

In addition to this, the following sites can offer support and advice:

  • Childnet offers a toolkit to support parents and carers of children of any age to start discussions about their online life, to set boundaries around online behaviour and technology use, and to find out where to get more help and support

  • Internet Matters provide age-specific online safety checklists, guides on how to set parental controls on a range of devices, and a host of practical tips to help children get the most out of their digital world
  • Let’s Talk About It provides advice for parents and carers to keep children safe from online radicalisation
  • London Grid for Learning provides support for parents and carers to keep their children safe online, including tips to keep primary aged children safe online
  • Lucy Faithfull Foundation StopItNow resource can be used by parents and carers who are concerned about someone’s behaviour, including children who may be displaying concerning sexual behaviour (not just about online)

Childline ‘Report, Remove’

Childline has released support for children of all ages to help remove nude images shared online. To get the images removed, visit the website. The child will need to:

  • Select their age
  • Create a Childline account to receive updates on the report
  • Report the image or video to the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF)

The only information you will give to the IWF are the images, videos, or URLs you report. There is space to add information such as where the image or video is on a webpage. Childline will never see the pictures and videos or URLs you share with the IWF. The only information the IWF shares with Childline apart from your case number is if they will take down your images or videos, and why.
