Welcome to the online safety page.
At Culverhill School we pride ourselves on taking a lead in teaching our students how to use new technology safely. We have a number of initiatives to increase student, parent and staff awareness of issues relating to online safety.
All students will receive a number of lessons this year, as part of the ICT curriculum, about how to stay safe in a digital world. These will be organised around an e-safety topic each term. This year the topics are as follows:
- Year 7 - 5 Lessons on Cyberbullying, Who am I talking to and Staying safe online.
- Year 8 - 5 Lessons on Cyberbullying, Who am I talking to and Staying safe online.
- Year 9 - 5 Lesson on Cyberbullying, Who am I talking to, Social networking and personal information.
- Years 10 - 5 lessons on information control, social networking, personal information, online risks and digital footprints.
- Year 11 - 5 lessons on information control, social networking, personal information, online risks and digital footprints.
During term 3 we create an e-safety noticeboard outside Classroom 12 where students can find information about online safety. We also have a number of leaflets available in school which provide further information for parents and students on specific topics such as where to find help if you have a problem and SMART rules.
We always focus on e-safety during National Anti-Bullying week in November each year and take the opportunity to highlight all aspects of internet security with students during Safer Internet Day in February.

We have a well established school e-safety policy which is updated annually and is available on the school website.
