Online-safety is an integral part of children’s education in today’s digital world and is embedded in their learning at Chorlton Park. We also want to help our parents and children improve their own understanding of online-safety issues so they can learn to use the internet and all digital media in a safe and secure way.
As part of our student’s curriculum and the development of computer skills, we provide access to the internet within teacher supervised lessons. We strongly believe that the use of the web and different online platforms is hugely worthwhile and an essential for children as they grow up in the modern world. But because there are always concerns about children having access to undesirable materials, we have taken positive steps to deal with this risk in school. Our school internet access provider operates a filtering system that restricts access to inappropriate materials and software that blocks constantly monitors the children’s activity.
Throughout the school year, each class discusses how we can all stay safe online and the dangers we may face on the internet. When children join KS2 every time they sign in, they must agree to follow the Acceptable Use Agreement before they can use a computer.
As a parent/carer you'll know how important the internet is to children - they use it to learn, play, socialise and express themselves. It's a highly creative place of amazing opportunities. But the technology children use every day can seem a bit daunting and you might worry about the risks your child can face online - such as bullying, contact from strangers or the possibility of them seeing illegal or inappropriate content.
