Safeguarding your child online
Safeguarding pupils in school extends to pupils using communication technology by way of our computer network. We work hard to ensure our pupil’ access to the world wide web is safe and level appropriate. Our connection to the internet has filters in place to avoid access to inappropriate sites and material and is monitored regularly by our staff and IT lead.
Online Safeguarding is an important part of the Rosehill School ethos
This page will help provide information and advice for pupils and parents about keeping safe online. It will be reviewed and updated in line with our Local Authority’s guidance, Effective E-Safety Practice for Schools and support the Government’s vision for improving online safety.
As technology is playing a bigger part in our pupils’ lives and the access to uncontrolled internet content forever on the increase, it is becoming ever more important that we need to keep children safe from online threats through promoting Online Safeguarding. We need to ensure that we are all aware of the risks involved and are being safe when using the internet. We will continue to educate our pupils via their assemblies, information sharing and displays and in class on the importance of safety online.
Technology enhances learning and schools can do much to ensure pupils get the most from it by encouraging responsible online behaviour. On this page you will find links to some very useful websites, resources and documents which are available for download. These will provide you with information on all you need to know in order to stay safe online and have fun surfing! These resources will hopefully educate pupils and parents on how to improve and maintain the safety of their online presence.
E-Safety Day- Whole School Project
What is 'Safer Internet Day' and how did we take part?
Safer Internet Day 202 is celebrated globally on Tuesday 9th February 2021 with the theme: 'An internet we trust: exploring reliability in the online world.' Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre the celebration sees hundreds of organisations get involved to help promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people. This year in the UK, Safer Internet Day will focus on how we can decide what to trust online, supporting young people to question, challenge and change the online world for the better. It will explore how influence, persuasion and manipulation can impact young people’s decisions, opinions and what they share online.
At Rosehill, we are committed to equipping all of our pupils with the skills and knowledge to help keep them safe when they are using technology. For further information about e-safety please visit https://www.saferinternet.org.uk/safer-internet-day/2021

This policy means that no mobile phones can be used in any part of the school, including the front of school and reception area.
