Online Safety

At The Coppice School our pupils make full and appropriate use of the internet, mobile devices and other forms of electronic communication to support their learning. We ensure that our children and young people are safe whilst using the technologies available to them through the appropriate use of web filtering systems, staff training and development and monitoring processes. 

Research tells us that some groups of learners, including those with special educational needs, are more vulnerable and more at risk than others when using technologies. Our E Safety Working Group meets half termly to drive the school's development in this area and to develop strategies for safe internet use as part of  a personalised approach to individual children's learning.

Watch the short cartoon below from CEOP. It's designed to share some of the important messages that help to keep our children and young people safe online. We have also included some links to a  number of online resources that parents/carers and those working with children with special educational needs might find useful.
