Online Safety

Tupton Hall School is committed to developing the use of ICT throughout the School and to developing the skills and knowledge of parents, staff, students and the wider community.

The school has in place policies for anti-bullying and eSafety (ICT Policy).

E-safety encompasses the safety of using Internet technologies and electronic communications such as mobile phones and wireless technology. It highlights the need to educate everyone about the benefits and risks of using new technology and provides safeguards and awareness for users to enable them to control their online experiences.

Parent Info provides information to parents and carers about their children's wellbeing and resilience across a wide range of subject matter. Some of the content covers internet safety, but it all starts from the assumption that young people make little distinction between their online and offline lives and the issues for parents are often the same. The aim is to help parents help their children be discriminating, web-literate and resilient.
