Our aim in the trust is to educate the children in our care about the benefits of the interenet, social media and online interaction. With this, however comes the serious risk of inappropriate content. All our schools use strict filtering which blocks many inappropriate sites and content. This clearly protects children in school but when they go home or use their mobile phones that protection is removed. We therefore need to work closely with them, ensuring they know what to do if they come across something that makes them feel uncomfortable or something that makes them feel sad.
On these pages, we will look at some of the tools available to keep children safe online.
