Safe Use of the Internet at School
"The KPSN (Schools Broadband) enforces filtering on all clients connected to the network. Filtering is enforced by a firewall policy which only permits HTTP traffic from the content engines at each WAN centre. HTTP traffic is intercepted using WCCP on the core switches, and is then filtered by the content engines which seek a yes or no response from Websense servers at the core. Any client connected to the KPSN can access the internet without the need for proxy settings and will still be filtered by these core servers."
"Primary students: this policy has been configured with primary aged children in mind and has been applied to all primary school curriculum IP ranges."
This statement is taken from the Education IT Services (EIS) website - KPSN (Schools Broadband) section on web filtering.
This year we have held two E Safety Days - one on Friday 21st September 2018 and our second on Tuesday 5th February 2019. Dundee class also dedicated their entire class assembly to E-Safety on this day. On Wednesday 13th March Mr Graham, Lead Teacher for ICT, held an information afternoon to inform parents on the current trends on social media and how to keep their children safe.
Throughout the year we will inform parents of any new trends that we believe they should be made aware of. This month we have made parents aware via letters about two dangerous internet concerns - 'Tick Tock' and 'MoMo'. We have also held an assembly to make our children aware and advised them what they must do if they are concerned.
