OnLine Safety 

As part of our commitment to online safety, we use a system of filtering and monitoring. 

Filtering: we will block access to harmful sites and content.

Monitoring: we will identify when a user accesses or searches for certain types of harmful content on school and college devices. We will then intervene and respond where needed.

 SJT provides a ‘Filtered’ Internet Access system which gives students access to the World Wide Web through the Lancashire County Council filtering system.

We also have additional filtering and classroom ICT management tools which enable us to track students’ internet and computer activity.

Despite these systems we endeavour to ensure that all students are made aware that there is material on the Internet which is unsuitable for viewing by children.

The following are not permitted:

  • sending or displaying offensive messages or pictures,
  • accessing undesirable material,
  • violating copyright laws,
  • using another student’s password,
  • trespassing in another student’s folder, work or files,
  • intentionally wasting limited resources.
  • Intentionally searching for inappropriate terms on another student’s account

Violations may result in a loss of access as well as other disciplinary action.

Students and parents sign an agreement at the beginning of the academic year regarding ICT good practice and acceptable use.

 In addition, Year 7 and Year 9 students undertake lessons in eSafety as part of their ICT lessons and all students are regularly reminded of the eSafety rules throughout the year during ICT.

PREVENT 

Radicalisation is the process by which a person comes to support terrorism and extremist ideologies. If you are worried someone close to you is becoming radicalised act early and seek help. The sooner you reach out, the quicker the person you care about can be protected from being groomed and exploited by extremists.  

Police forces across the country have specially trained Prevent officers who work with professionals in health, education, local authorities and charities, as well as faith and community groups to help vulnerable people move away from extremism. They are here to listen and offer help and advice. Receiving support is voluntary.  

Friends and family are best placed to spot the signs, so trust your instincts and share your concerns in confidence.  

They can help if you act early. You won't be wasting police time and you won’t ruin lives, but you might save them.
