Online Safety


At Brook Green we strive to ensure that our students have a solid awareness of how to keep themselves safe whilst using digital devices be it the school computers or their own personal devices whilst at home. 


Our students are taught how to identify and manage risks, how to manoeuvre their way around online with an understanding of what is and is not safe or appropriate.  Monitoring is in place and students are aware that should their online activity at Brook Green raise cause for concern they will be approached by the relevant member of the digital safeguarding team where issues identified are discussed and resolved.  This ensures that students become safe responsible users of technology.


While cybersecurity protects devices and networks from harm by third parties, Online Safety protects the people using them from harm by the devices and networks through awareness, education and information.  Therefore, this is what we call the appropriate approach to personal safety when using digital technologies.


Online Safety is being aware of the nature of the possible threats that you could encounter whilst engaging in activity through the Internet, these could be security threats, protecting and managing your personal data, online reputation management, and avoiding harmful or illegal content.


It isn’t about scaremongering, it isn’t about criticism and chaos, it’s about focusing on the positive and enriching side of digital life whilst recognising its challenges and how to best approach them.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns please feel free to get in touch with school and we will do our best to help.
