Ivanhoe School 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 School’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 School 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.
In PSHRE online safety is covered in all year groups appropriate to age of students. We ensure that all students are given appropriate guidance on using online technology, the laws around this and how to ensure that they protect their privacy online. We also equip students with the knowledge and guidance to support them to raise any concerns about what they may come across online and who to go to if anything they see causes them concern.
All our ICT & PSHRE 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.
