Welcome to the Online Safety section of our school website.
Rapidly changing and ever advancing technologies are now easily accessible by our children and their families. Therefore it is essential that children are educated how to use these responsibly. Staying safe online is extremely important to us at Audley Junior School. Teaching children to know how to use the internet safely and responsibly continues to be a high priority at our school. We believe in educating our children so that they can enjoy using the internet safely.
Our pupils are taught how to stay safe in the ever developing online world of technology. Children are taught about the dangers of using the internet, the importance of password security to protect personal data and the need for appropriate online behaviours. We are dedicated to preparing our children for the risks involved when using technology, ensuring that they are confident to use the strategies they have been taught should they ever experience inappropriate material online, whether at school or at home.
We are currently continuing to work towards the 360º Safe Quality Mark.
Audley Junior School has strict filtering in place, provided by the local authority. However, we must be realistic and teach our children to search safely and to conduct themselves in a sensible manner online.
National Online Safety Guidance for Parents
Children using Roblox
In many of the online apps that our children use today, there is the increasing possibility of contact from children that they do not know. As the online world becomes ever more advanced, it is important that we teach children the correct behaviour to follow.
Recently, many children have reported online safety worries regarding messages from unknown children on Roblox. If your child uses Roblox and receives any messages that they are unhappy with, the information attached below shows how another user can be blocked (as well as additional information).
It is important as a parent that you are aware that your child has access to play against people that they do not know in this game. The other players have the ability to join any game that your child is a part of. For children under 13, Roblox should provide stricter settings, but a child can change these if there isn’t a parent PIN. Please ensure that you explore the Account Restrictions settings.
If your child has an online safety worry, they are able to add it to our worry box and it will be dealt with accordingly.
