E safety

It is very important that we all work together to help keep children safe online.  If anyone has acted inappropriately online, for example something that makes you feel uncomfortable or someone insisting you meet up, you can report it to the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP); click here for further details on how to raise a report.

Student / parent agreement for the acceptable use of ICT

The framework that helps us to ensure we use ICT safely in school is linked below.

E-Safety curriculum

The Internet has become an integral part of modern life. Children start using computers from a very early age and are increasingly using the Internet more whether it is at home, in school, on their mobile phones or on a games console. It is therefore essential for young people to have a good understanding of E-Safety, in order to stay safe online.

Students at Gillotts will be following an E-Safety curriculum. The curriculum is delivered once a term in horizontal tutor sessions and focuses on the following aspects of E-Safety:

  • Creative credit and Copyright
  • Cyberbullying
  • Digital footprint and reputation
  • Information literacy
  • Internet safety
  • Privacy and security
  • Relationships and communication
  • Self-image and identity

Please see the document linked at the bottom of this page for more information on our comprehensive E-Safety curriculum, so you can support what your son/daughter is learning about each term.

If you have any questions regarding our E-Safety curriculum, please contact Mrs Gemma Silk (Subject leader for Religious Studies and PSHE).

Reporting online images

Images or videos can be reported if they contain your image, they don’t have to break any terms of use due to being inappropriate. Parents can report images/videos of children under 13, while children over 13 need to report it themselves (unless the child is ‘mentally or physically unable to report this content on their own’). Adults can also use these tools to report photos/videos of themselves. The links below are to some of the more common sites images/videos appear:
