Trinity Academy provides a safe environment for students to browse and study using the Internet. Strict controls are in place to offer freedom to work and explore, but prevent access to potentially harmful or inappropriate material. This protects students at the academy, but many parents may be concerned this safety is not always guaranteed on personal devices or in areas not regulated in a similar manner.
The Internet provides many benefits and can be an invaluable resource to enhance learning, aid revision and support homework. We are pleased to offer this facility, with confidence all students will enjoy their online experience, and would like to help parents gain similar confidence in protecting their child’s safety when using the internet and other mobile devices. There are many resources available to help protect children in the online world and we have taken a selection of the best resources for you to read at your convenience. Should you have any concerns regarding your child’s online activity our Pastoral Team will be happy to discuss any issues or offer advice in strict confidence.
The following Top Tips are taken from the CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection) ‘Thinkuknow’ website, as a quick guide to protecting your child online. You can read further information and watch guidance videos using the links at the bottom of the page and within the Top Tips.
