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 seven children from Years 4 and 5 who meet regularly to discuss how we can improve our online safety provision here at Redhill. Our first task for this year was to devise some questionnaires for children, staff and parents in order to develop some priorities for the year ahead. It was great to learn that our teachers are really confident with the online safety rules we have in place at Redhill. We looked at the children’s questionnaire results from across school and decided on key areas that the online safety committee can educate children about through assemblies. We are also working on age-appropriate Redhill Online Safety Rules posters for each classroom. 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.
