We take online safety (previously referred to as e-safety) very seriously at Branston Community Academy.
Thinkuknow is an education initiative by the Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) Centre – the UK’s national law enforcement agency that focuses on tackling the sexual abuse of children. In Branston Community Academy there is a rolling program throughout the year to support this initiative:
- The Computing department at Branston delivers online-safety lessons throughout all Key Stages.
- Parents/carers that attend our Y7 Welfare Evening and our Y11 Information Evening are given presentations containing online safety advice and the presentations are made available to those than cannot attend.
- All staff receive online safety training and are familiar with the Branston Community Academy Safeguarding policy which contains the online safety policy.
- All staff and students sign and agree to abide by an ICT Acceptable use Policy.
Please contact one of the following members of BCA staff for advice regarding e-safety using our Contact Us page.
