E-Safety

Acceptable Usage Policy

In order to ensure high standards of e-safety we need to make sure that there is a clear understanding between the pupil and the Academy about the terms of use of the Academy’s computing facilities. The Acceptable User Policy sets out the rules for the use of ICT at Alde Valley Academy.  When students log in to our computer network, they must click an acceptable use policy to agree to the terms and conditions of our acceptable use.


E-Safety

The internet is an essential way to discover, create and connect with people. Whether on a computer at school, a laptop/tablet at home, a games console or mobile phone, children and young people are increasingly accessing the internet whenever they can and wherever they are, it is now a major part of their life especially their social lives.

At Alde Valley we teach E-safety within our Computer Science curriculum, PSHE lessons and also have dedicated E-safety assemblies. We aim to educate our students so that they understand the risks and can make sensible and informed choices online; allowing them to make most of the internet and stay safe whilst doing so.

On this section of our website you can find suggestions about where to find useful information.  Please use these to look at some of the ways you can support your children with using the internet and modern day communication.


What is Sexting?

Sexting is when someone sends or receives a sexually explicit text, image or video on their mobile phone, usually in a text message. Find out how you can stay in control and what to do if a photo has fallen into the wrong hands.

Social Media Terms and Conditions

Children often don’t know what they’re signing up to when they join social media sites like Facebook, YouTube, Snapchat, WhatsApp or Instagram. The Children's Commissioner has worked with lawyers to create these simplified versions of Terms and Conditions for the most popular social media platforms. Click the logos below.
