How we protect your children online at school
Our school network is secured and monitored via the LGfL (London Grid for Learning) firewall and content web filter. We block any inappropriate content and children have restricted access to the internet.
Pupils have their own individual logins for Chromebooks and any accounts they are set up with, which they are taught to keep private.
Pupils have individual accounts with Purple Mash through which they access various units of work and software which is safe for pupils to use.
PIXLR for Education
We use a digital photo-editing software called PIXLR in some of our Art & Design units. Teachers use PIXLR for Education which is an ad free version of the software that has enhanced security features, so it is compliant with legislation designed to protect children.
