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 2023 was celebrated globally on Tuesday 7th February 2023 with the theme: ‘Want to talk about it? Making space for conversations about life online’.
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. The focus for activities will be based around conversations about life online and what pupils enjoy doing on the internet and how the internet can impact on their lives in both a positive and negative way.
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://saferinternet.org.uk/safer-internet-day/safer-internet-day-2023
No Mobile Phone Policy
At Rosehill School we have been working hard to ensure that anyone coming onto the school site respects and follows our no mobile phone policy in order to safeguard the children and young people attending the school.
This policy means that no mobile phones can be used in any part of the school, including the front of school and reception area.
