Online safety

Online safety

At The Compass Academy we work to educate our pupils about online safety.

Staff at the academy discuss and teach the pupils about appropriate behaviours and work to enable pupils to remain safe and legal when using the internet and any other related technologies.

We think that pupils need to be provided guidance regarding online safety regularly.

At The Compass Academy we embed online safety throughout the academy and within the curriculum. We believe it is as important to educate the pupils as it is to continually refresh staff on potential online issues and how to remain safe and legal online.

Parental Controls

Smartphones and other devices

Children are using devices at a younger age so it’s important to consider setting controls on their tech, or on any devices that you are letting them borrow from you. We’ve pulled together a number of guides to give you simple steps to set controls on a range of devices.

Internet Matters – Keep children safe online


The Compass Academy’s online safety policy is in place to ensure that necessary and relevant measures are embedded to protect pupils and staff who are working with ICT equipment and other technologies.

The policy is to assist school staff working with children to work safely and responsibly with the Internet and other communication technologies and to monitor their own and pupils’ standards and practice.

Our responsibility is to set high expectations for our pupils using communication technologies and to maintain a consistent approach to online safety.
