Internet safety at Cathedral School

Images of children To ensure children’s identity is protected on the internet, any photos or videos published at school on public sites and networks will not have any captions, titles, tags or descriptions that reveal the name of the relevant children.

Parent comments When making a comment about an image or video clip on a class blog, or other site used in school, parents should not use a child’s name. Parents’ usernames should also avoid stating the name of their child. This will prevent any matching of children’s names to their images or video clips.

Children’s contributions Children who publish text, photos or video on public sites as part of their learning at school are instructed not to reveal their identity or the identity of other children, instead they are to sign off using their initials.

Monitoring Teachers regularly monitor blogs and other relevant sites and software, and remove any posts as appropriate. Please let your child’s teacher know if you would like an item removed.

LinksSome images and videos published on blogs and other sites may offer links to non-school content.
If you have any more concerns about the security of the blog then please pop into the classroom and have a chat with the teacher responsible for that blog or Mr Scott.
