School Closure

The school is currently closed for the majority of students due to the national Covid-19 response.

Protecting Your Child Online

Ivanhoe College recognises the Internet and other digital technologies provide a vast opportunity for children and young people to learn. More than any other mode of technology, the Internet and digital technologies allow all those involved in the education of children and young people to promote creativity, stimulate awareness and enhance learning.
 

Hand in hand with the College’s desire for its students to access every opportunity for learning, there will be the need to keep them safe from the perils of the Internet, digital and mobile technologies. Ivanhoe College is committed to ensuring that all students will be able to use existing, as well as up and coming technologies safely. We are also committed to ensuring that all those who work with students; as well as their parents, are educated as to the dangers that exist so that they can take an active part in safeguarding children and young people.

 

How we protect our students.

At Ivanhoe, our students are taught about e-Safety. e-Safety is being safe online when using communication technologies such as social networks as well as when communicating through other technologies such as mobile phones.

To support our students in being safe users of these technologies we have e-Safety taught to every year group, every year.

In Year 7 & 9 during ICT lessons students will complete a project about e-Safety, the risks and the strategies to stay safe.

In Year 8 during Life Skills lessons, students will work through CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection) produced resources to deepen their understanding of the issues involved with having an online presence.

All our ICT & Life Skills teachers have been trained by our CEOP ambassador, who is one of 2500 trained e-Safety specialists. Throughout the website and Moodle we have a permanent link to CEOP and thinkuknow sites to help with learning about and reporting issues to do with online safety.

We also run parent training sessions, led by our CEOP ambassador.
