Online Safety 

Our aims

Through our policy for online safety, we aim to achieve the following:

  • To protect and educate pupils and staff in their use of technology;
  • To ensure that the school provides a broad and balanced online safety curriculum;
  • To ensure that the school has the appropriate mechanisms to monitor incidents and ensure they are recorded and dealt with accordingly;
  • To ensure pupils are fully aware of cyber-bullying and can actively try to prevent it from occurring;
  • To engage and inform parents and the wider school community in order to ensure that children are safe online when at home.

Redhill Online Safety Policy

Online Safety Coordinator

Whilst all staff at Redhill take responsibility for online safety, our named online safety coordinator is Mrs Coughlan. She takes responsibility for ensuring that all members of our school community are kept up-to-date and informed when it comes to online safety. Look out for her weekly piece in the Mail on Friday to find tips on how to keep your child safe online.

Online Safety Committee

This year, Mrs Coughlan has a dedicated group of children from across KS1 and KS2 who meet regularly to discuss how we can improve our online safety provision here at Redhill. Building on the foundations set by last year’s committee, the group have been working hard to prepare and deliver assemblies to both KS1 and KS2, reminding all children in school about the most important rules we have in place to help everybody stay safe online. They even delivered the assemblies virtually using Microsoft Teams! All of the children in school are aware of the pupils that make up our online safety committee and are encouraged to seek them out if they need any advice about staying safe online.
