Excellence in the Heart of the Community
Wade Deacon Trust
Protecting students and staff while they use ICT and the internet is important at Hillside, we have a number of measures in place concerning E-safety.
Below is a list of measures implemented to protect and inform our users regarding e-safety and to minimise the risk from e-safety incidents:
As mentioned above, e-safety is taught within ICT and Citizenship/SMSC lessons. The following information gives a brief explanation on how this is covered.
All classes in year 7 have completed a unit of work based around E-safety looking at the following:
ICT classes in Year’s 10 (Cambridge) & 11 (GCSE)
Safer Internet Day - Tuesday 7th February 2017
Anti-bullying Week - Monday 14th - Friday 18th November 2017
All classes take part in an activity around the day and place an entry into an ICT competition based around SID.
Citizenship/SMSC explores the issue of prejudice, diversity and bullying in the first term in year 7. This is done to ensure that students are aware of the issues and expectations within the secondary school environment at the very start of their school career.
E-safety is delivered during this time to raise awareness of potential threats to student safety through the use of a variety of technologies. An example of this would be cyber bullying using the internet.
There are a range of differentiated resources held on the school network from which form tutors can choose the most appropriate for their form group. These resources are accompanied by lesson plans to assist tutors in delivering the lessons effectively.
Lessons resources consist of:
Shortly after the topic of E-safety finishes in year 7 Citizenship/SMSC, the content is reinforced and further developed by subject specialists in the schools ICT department. This cross-curricular approach emphasises and raises the profile of E-Safety across the school.
