The internet is an incredible place, abundant with information , gaming sites and social media’s, and, just like pupils across the country, the pupils here at Rosewood School spend a vast amount of time using the internet within school and at home. This is why it is important pupils at Rosewood learn how to be safe when browsing online and becoming members of online communities.
At Rosewood, our students learn about E-Safety through a scheme of lessons that we follow through from years 7 to 11; we do this as we believe it is imperative that a child has constant reassurance as how to stay safe online and how to report any concerns. We also encourage parents/carers to talk to their children about how to behave safely when online, to ensure pupils remain safe when browsing at home.
At Rosewood our students are aware of how to report any inappropriate content and are aware of a range of adults and organisations they can turn to. One of the largest organisations that you can report and concerns to is CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre) Follow the link below where you will find guidance for students and Parents/carers.
At Rosewood, our students learn about E-Safety through a scheme of lessons that we follow through from years 7 to 11.
At Rosewood we believe that our school has a central role in educating and supporting our parents and carers as well as whole school community with online safety.
We also encourage parents to set up filtering on their home internet. To learn how to do this for the major providers of internet please click the text below.
One way to make browsing the internet safer at home is to use a ‘safe search’ search engine as well as having parental controls on the home computer.
We also advise that the home computer is in a central location that can be monitored at all times.
As a school we are aware of the growth and rapid change that is occurring on the internet and the social medias that are now available to us. One of the largest growing social medias at the moment is Facebook and although we are aware that nobody under the age of 13 should be accessing Facebook, if they are then they should be educated as to how to ensure they are safe. In order to do this we advise parents and carers to check their child’s privacy setting and monitor any conversations or status’ they engage in.
CEOP also has a brilliant website regarding information about E-safety for specific for parents or carers.
Think you know have launched a new three month Parents and Carers social media campaign aimed at encouraging parents and carers to talk to their children about sex, relationships and the internet.
Today we are launching a brand new public awareness campaign. Through social media, articles, blogs, films and more, we want to get parents and carers thinking and talking about the importance of discussing sex, relationships and the internet with their children.
