Safety Online

We are very aware of the importance of encouraging the children to share and communicate about their online activity and also of reminding them of their digital citizenship responsibility to look after themselves and others both online and offline.

If any child is found to be using online learning resources or other platforms inappropriately, particularly where offence is caused to another child, the issue will be passed onto the Senior Master, Simon Hallam who will follow it up.

if you would like to discuss any issues or concerns, please contact the tutor or Mr Roche.

Preparing for online lessons

We recommend that during the Online Lessons, the children should set up their learning spaces as follows:

  • Choose a location based on your child’s learning preferences.

  • Eliminate distractions - No phones, no tv etc

  • Make it comfortable—but not too comfortable

  • Ensure the learning space has good lighting

  • Have all of your child’s supplies—pencils, paper, calculators, for example—easily accessible in their learning space

  • If possible, the learning space should only be used for learning

Discord App

It has been brought to our attention that a number of students are using Discord during lessons. Discord is a free app for mobile and PC that lets people chat via text, voice, or video in real time. There are a number of features in Discord which we would like to draw your attention to which you can find out more about here. We would rather that children are engaged and focussed on their lessons and using the communication tools within Google Classroom to communicate with teachers.
