At Handsworth Grange Community Sports College, we are committed to ensuring your child is fully aware of how to stay safe online. We like to ensure that your child knows what to do if they or their friends are exposed to any online threats. Teaching your child E-safety is a vital part of the education we provide for all our pupils.
In Year 7, as part of the Computer Science curriculum we teach a topic covering:
- Chatroom Etiquette
- Cyber bullying
- Social Networking Sites
- Hacking and Viruses
Also, we aim to ensure that all staff are familiar with E Safety and adopt a consistent approach to dealing with related incidents and offering appropriate guidance to your child.
If you would like more information on this topic, you can visit the following website:
Once there you can click on the link for Parent Advice and read all about current issues and gather strategies for talking to your children about the risks posed by online activity.
In the future we are planning to deliver special assemblies designed for parents to attend that allow you to better understand the current issues regarding E-safety.
The digital age has changed what it means to be a child. There are some things that children don't want to see online and that you, as a parent, would rather they didn't. Parental controls are the names for filters and blockers of certain content, and can help you protect your children from the things they shouldn't see or do online.
Please use the videos and the tool on the page link provided to protect your child at home and on their mobile device.
