E-Safety

The safety of our children is a number one priority at Gravenhurst Academy. This is equally important when they are using technology and can access the internet.

Computing lessons start each year with E-Safety for every class, a subject that is embedded continually throughout the year in computing lessons. 

Our E-Safety Rules

  • We ask permission before using the Internet.
  • We only use websites that an adult has chosen.
  • We tell an adult if we see anything we are uncomfortable with and we immediately close any webpage we not sure about.
  • We only e-mail the people my teacher has approved and the messages we send will be polite and responsible.
  • We never give out personal information or passwords.
  • We never arrange to meet anyone we don’t know.
  • We do not open e-mails sent by anyone we don’t know.
  • We do not use Internet chat rooms.
  • We do not download programs or bring programs on disc or CD Rom from home into school.
  • We realize that if we don’t use the Internet sensibly we will not be allowed to use it.
