Online Safety

At Hinde House School we have an embedded programme of on-line safety within the curriculum in PSHE and ICT, form-time and while school initiatives which respond to topical issues that arise and also a focus around Safer Internet Day in February each year.

We talk to children about crossing the road, bullying and speaking to strangers in the real world but children today face all these perceived threats online too.

We aim to equip the students with the knowledge to stay safe on-line by not limiting their usage but providing them with the knowledge and resources to be a discerning and resilient user when dealing with other people in the virtual world.

The on-line safety PSHE curriculum focuses on:

• Rules for staying safe on-online
• Cyberbullying
• On-line grooming and exploitation
• How to be safe when gaming on-line
• On-line gambling
• Predators on social media
• Being a discerning user on social media.
• On-line pornography.

All the lessons are appropriate for the age group and parents are informed if there is a sex and relationship aspect to the lesson.

The on-line safety adviser also looks at prevalent issues and topics and addresses them if needed by monitoring the press and working closely with the safeguarding team. If issues arise these are addressed through form-time activities.


The school monitors all student’s internet usage at school to ensure it is appropriate and will provide guidance to any student that accidentally or otherwise break the internet usage policy.

There is an online safety policy that is reviewed each year that sets out how the students should use the internet at school, and also sets out the importance of providing on-line safety education in today’s digital world.

Staying safe online | Childline

"Don't upload or share anything you wouldn't want your parents, teachers or friends seeing. Once you press send, it is no longer private. Anything you send can be shared with other people and you can't be sure who will end up seeing it."

"Welcome to Childnet International, a non-profit organisation working with others to help make the internet a great and safe place for children."
