Welcome to the Online Safety section of the Academy website. This page has been designed to give you advice and assistance with protected your child and yourself whilst using the internet and electronic devices.
My name is Miss Williams and I am the Academy Online Safety Champion and teacher of ICT & Business. It is my responsibility to help to safeguard the online safety of staff, students and visitors whilst they are in the Academy. I also provide advice, training and assistance to parents of our students and members of the local community.
Please have a look at the links and advice sheets on this site and get in touch if you have any further questions.
Whisper Anonymous reporting button - Sharing things that upset you is not always an easy thing to do. Whisper is designed to act as another way you can tell a responsible adult at the school about any issues that you or others might be having. Sometimes that way might be easier than a face to face meeting. Whisper can be used by anyone including students, members of the community and parents and is totally confidential.
This might include:
- You or someone else being bullied
- Something happening online that you don’t feel comfortable with and might need some advice
- If you have a problem that you need to talk about to somebody
Please don’t use bad language as we may not receive your message: the school systems may filter and block things like swear words and stop your message getting to the Whisper account.
You can also send an anonymous text using the Whisper system which will be reported to the Academy.
Text COO followed by your message to 078600 21584
If you have an immediate or urgent concern about the welfare or safety of a child, these should always be reported to the Police on 999.
