Online safety

Online safety has a high profile at Forest Lodge Academy for all stakeholders. We ensure this profile is maintained and that pupil needs are met by the following: 

• Relevant up-to-date online safety curriculum, which is progressive from Early Years to the end of Year 6.

• A curriculum that is threaded throughout other curriculums and embedded in the day-to-day lives of our pupils.

  • Safer Internet Day celebrated with a collaborative parent – child poster competition

• Training for staff and governors, which is relevant to their needs and ultimately positively impacts on the pupils.

• Scheduled pupil voice sessions and learning walks that inform training needs.

• Through our home/school links and communication channels, parents are kept up to date with relevant online safety matters, policies and agreements. They know who to contact at school if they have concerns.

• Our online safety policy (part of our safeguarding policy) clearly states how monitoring of online safety is undertaken and any incidents/infringements to it are dealt with.

• Filtering and monitoring systems for all our online access.
