Keeping our students safe online

e-safety is of utmost importance at the academy. All students receive regular advice and input through SMSC, Computing and tutor time alongside events such as e-safety day.

All staff are regularly trained in managing and supporting both students and themselves with regards to e-safety.

As part of Safer Internet Week, the academy has produced an e-safety survey for parents. It can be found here. Please take a few moments to complete it. The results will give us a better understanding of any risks or knowledge gaps so that we can help and support you, by providing relevant information, advice and guidance.

The OAT Policy for E-Safety and E-Security can be found here.
