E-Safety

Winterhill School takes e-Safety very seriously and we have various training and systems in place to educate students on how to stay safe when using ICT. This includes:

  • Year 7 students being educated on how to use all aspects of ICT safely from chat rooms to cyber bullying.
  • holding information sessions to the parents/carers of Year 7 students on the use of the Internet and dangers to be aware of. This training is delivered by CEOP trained police officers.
  • implementing ICT systems that keep children safe whilst using the Internet and not allowing them access to sites or material that is inappropriate.
