E-Safety at Rolvenden

In today’s digital age, ensuring the safety of our students in the virtual world is just as important as the physical one. Teach Computing, which is our resource of choice for teaching computing, provides staff with lots of resources through which E-Safety can be taught and practised. Our children are taught to recognise threats online using the SMART (Safe, Meet, Accepting, Reliable, Tell) with a Heart approach. More information on this approach can be found by clicking this link.

Our children have access to a large bank of Chromebooks which are managed for us by the Tenterden Schools Trust central IT team. Our system features a fully up-to-date management and filtering system provided by Broadband4 – our internet provider.

We also use resources from the Internet Safety Centre and the National Online Safety group to help support children and families navigate the minefield of apps which are available to the general consumer.
