Castle Hill School works with staff, pupils and parents / carers to create a school community which values the use of new technologies to enhance learning. As part of this process we encourage the responsible use of ICT and follow agreed policies to minimise potential e-safety risks.
We discuss, monitor and review our e-safety policy on a regular basis, linking it with other relevant policies such as those related to Safeguarding and Pupil Behaviour.
We support staff in the use of ICT as an essential tool for enhancing learning and communication and ensure that pupils are able to access technology in a safe manor.
Thinkuknow is an education website from the National Crime Agency’s CEOP Command.Since 2006, Thinkuknow has been keeping children and young people safe by providing education about sexual abuse and sexual exploitation.
Thinkuknow is unique.
It is underpinned by the latest intelligence about child sex offending from CEOP Command.
Thinkuknow aims to ensure that everyone has access to this practical information – children, young people, their parents and carers and the professionals who work with them.
Alongside the Thinkuknow website the programme provides educational resources, including films, cartoons and lesson plans, to help professionals raise young people’s awareness.
