We take online safety (previously referred to as e-safety) very seriously at Branston Community Academy.
We have a rolling program throughout the year to support this topic:
- We are working with National Online Safety to deliver interactive online workshops for all our parents and carers, governors and teachers.
- 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.
- 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 our Designated Safeguarding Lead for advice regarding online safety using our Contact Us page.
