Children and young people spend a lot of time online – it can be a great way for them to socialise, explore and have fun. However, children do also face risks such as cyberbullying or accessing inappropriate content. That’s why it’s important for them to know how to stay safe online.
At Brighouse High School we strive to keep your child safe whilst using the Internet in school. We have an Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) which outlines safe working practices and procedures. Our curriculum includes links to online safety including cyberbullying through subject areas and through our Learning 4 Life / Tutorial programme.
Technology has many benefits, but as you hear in the news, it also has many dangers and it is important that you talk to your child about e-safety.
Below are some useful resources to help ensure your child is safe on the internet at home:
