We value the importance of online safety at Bradford Academy and are currently working towards the 360 degrees Self Review Accreditation Award.
At Bradford Academy children use the internet on a regular basis as part of their learning. We have dedicated weekly computing lessons to teach them useful skills and we have regular online safety activities and events to remind children of the importance of keeping themselves safe online.
Sometimes children will have unsupervised access to the internet at home. Please make sure that, when letting children use websites, you have checked the terms and conditions of the site – many websites have minimum ages to be able to access their content – for example, Facebook has a policy which states you must be 13 or over to have an account.
Here are some tips and useful links for help and guidance on safe surfing and keeping your children safe online, for example, when using mobile phones, blogs, social media, chatting, online gaming and emailing:
Visit the Child Exploitation and Online Protection website for confidential support if something has happened online which has made you feel unsafe, if you are worried about someone else or to report online abuse.
You should contact the Police by calling 999 if you or anybody else is in any sort of danger.
