Online Safety

Online Safety at Branston Church of England Infant Academy 





Computers, technology and the internet are everywhere we turn!


The internet opens up a world of information, opportunities and knowledge. It is increasingly important for children to know how to keep safe when using computers and online. This page contains information on how to keep your child safe whilst online at home.  






In line with Government guidance we teach about the benefits and risks of technology and the internet, this includes:

  • identifying online risks
  • acceptable and unacceptable online behaviours
  • recognising techniques used for persuasion (from advertising to bullying) 
  • how and when to seek help


At Branston Church of England Infant Academy we have a whole school consistent approach to Online Safety with all members of staff being aware of and able to recognise Online Safety issues. 

We promote and support the use of technology safety, protect and educate pupils in their use of technology and have procedures in place in the event of an incident. 


Our Online Safety curriculum is age-appropriate, relevant and engages pupils' interests. We promote Online Safety through teaching pupils how to stay safe, how to protect themselves from harm and how to take responsibility for their own and others' safety. 

 Keeping children safe on the internet at home 


Children should:

  • ask permission before using the internet and discuss what websites they are using
  • only use websites you have chosen together or a child friendly search engine (kidtopia/kiddle)
  • not use their real name when online, instead, they should create a nickname
  • never give out any personal information about themselves, friends or family online including address, school or phone number
  • never arrange to meet someone they have met online without talking to an adult first. If they do arrange to meet someone they have met online they should always take an adult and meet in a public place
  • tell you immediately if they see anything they are unhappy with


You can also help keep your child safe by setting privacy settings and get your child to ignore and block people who send unpleasant messages.
