Internet Safety

E Safety or electronic safety refers to the knowledge of the dangers that the Internet poses and the ability to prevent these dangers by taking action.

Here at St Paul’s we encourage our students to take the necessary steps to remain safe while using the Internet. Many students use Social Media sites to connect and communicate with friends regularly.

Ways in which students can ensure that they are safe online are listed below:

  • Don’t post any personal information online such as your address or mobile number
  • Keep your privacy settings high so that only your friends can see your profile
  • Never give out your passwords to anyone
  • Don’t meet up with people you’ve only met online
  • Respect other people’s opinions, don’t post offensive comments or bully anyone online
  • Always tell an adult if you feel uncomfortable, unsafe or worried about something you’ve experienced online
  • Click the ‘Report Abuse’ button to highlight abuse you might have encountered while on the Internet 

 

  

Students will have lessons on E Safety as well as Assemblies and workshops conducted by staff at St Paul’s and external agencies.

At St Paul’s Academy we have a very robust filtering system known as ESafe. This software is able to detect when a student has typed something inappropriate whilst using the computers at school. A weekly report is generated and staff are alerted to any suspicious or inappropriate online activity by students. In addition to detecting such activity, ESafe also blocks unsuitable sites to ensure that students are safe online. Parents and Carers are shown a presentation on Induction Evening for the Year 7 cohort and this presentation highlights how teenagers interact with technology and tips on how to assist them in staying safe online. We encourage parents/carers to talk to their children about their Internet activity and also to ensure that they are using Social Media appropriately.
