Online Safety

At Clifford Road, online safety is a cornerstone of our safeguarding policy and procedures to ensure that children are safe and responsible citizens in an increasingly technological society.

We recognise that the Internet, social media and devices are a source of educational information, a tool for learning and a part of everyday life. However, we also believe in the importance of protecting our young people from the dangers that these things can pose.


Online safety is taugh as part of our Computing and PSHE curriculum. Children learn how to be safe and responsible users of technology. They also learn what to do when they feel something is unsafe or worrying.

In addition to planned learning, staff are proactive in tackling a need if and when they arise and teachers adapt their planning to reflect this.

Online Filtering and Monitoring

Our school uses SurfProtect for filtering online content. Designed specifically for the education sector, SurfProtect® offers protection that keeps pupils safe online without impacting their learning experience.

Granular control: Applying individual filtering profiles for specific users and user groups. This means pupils are protected whilst still being able to access age appropriate content.

KCSiE and Prevent Duty Compliant: Implement appropriate filtering that provides safe learning experiences for pupils and fulfils the DfE’s statutory requirements for schools and colleges.
