SAFEGUARDING ONLINE

Online teaching has the same principles as set out in the Bath Academy staff code of conduct. This policy includes acceptable use of technologies, staff pupil/student relationships and communication including the use of social media.

Support for Students Learning Online:

Children working offline can raise concerns online by reporting back to the school, or by contacting:

Childline for support.

UK Safer Internet Centre – to report and remove harmful online content.

CEOP (Child Exploitation & Online Protection)- for advice on making a report about online abuse.

Parents and carers may choose to supplement the school or college online offer with support from online companies and in some cases individual tutors. Schools will write to parents to stress the importance of securing online support from a reputable organisation/individual who can provide evidence that they are safe and can be trusted to have access to children.

London Grid for Learning – for support for parents and carers to keep their children safe online
