Parents » E-Safety
E-safety is a big part of our safeguarding agenda at Hayes and also forms part of our ICT provision in lessons at KS3 and across our Personal Development programme.
The 4 C’s help to identify and recognise where online risks can arise:
CONTENT: Being exposed to illegal, inappropriate or harmful content. For example: pornography, fake news, self-harm, suicide, radicalisation and extremism.
CONDUCT: Personal online behaviour that increases the likelihood of, or causes, harm. For example: making, sending and receiving explicit messages and online bullying.
CONTACT: Being subjected to harmful online interaction with other users. For example: peer to peer pressure, adults posing as children (grooming) and commercial advertising.
COMMERCE: Risks such as online gambling, inappropriate advertising, phishing and/or financial scams
Below are some useful links provided by the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre to help students, parents & carers understand the threats that children may be exposed to on-line as well as ways of dealing with them.
We would encourage parents/carers to support their child by spending some time looking through the various links and discussing internet safety with your children.
Our E-Safety assemblies for all students take place during Safer Internet Week in February in addition and in line with our E-safety Policy (link below) Year 7 and 12 students receive E-safety Training delivered by an external provider in November. There is also an opportunity for parents/carers to attend E-safety Awareness Training in November. The resources from previous presentations are shared below.
