Online Safety

Exciting Announcement:

J H Godwin families have been invited to take part in a Government -funded trial, run by TrustElevate. This trial gives every parent who takes part, an age verification and consent management provider, designed to enhance your child’s safety online. TrustElevate enables the checking of children’s ages to prevent their contact with adults with a sexual interest in children online and facilitates parental consent for data processing, in line with GDPR and other regulations. See information below for details.

Children at J H Godwin have regular access to the internet as part of their learning. Our curriculum encourages responsible online behaviour ensuring children are allowed to enhance their learning safely through the use of technology.

In School

Within school, each child has access to the internet to support their learning across different areas of the curriculum. To keep them safe, we ensure that our school has a filtering system which prevents any inappropriate content appearing on any searches or advertisements.

As well as this, within each year group, classes are taught about the risks and dangers when using the interent and are taught many ways of keeping themselves safe online. We promote good online behaviours and teach children the best ways to protect themself online through our e-safety units of work.

At Home

Today's society means that children will sometimes be given unsupervised access to the internet. Potentially, this will allow them access to all kinds of material both appropriate and inappropriate. Click on the links below to find some hints and tips to help you keep your child safe online.  Families can use the CEOP Safety Centre ( where they can report abuse and exploitation direct to CEOP. 

Further support for parents:


Social Media

Many of the sites such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and SnapChat have a minimum age limit of 13, so children from J H Godwin should not be using them. However, in reality, we are aware that some of our children do access these sites. More information is available at This site will allow you to make informed decisions about whether you feel social media sites are appropriate for your child or not.
