E-Safety Advice


We believe that as students of Sale Grammar School, you need the knowledge, skills and tools to understand and harness the power of the Internet.

When you use the Internet in school, you and your parents can be assured that through our security and filtering technologies, your browsing will be safe and secure. However, when you are browsing the Internet at home, things may not be as safe and secure.

Always think WISE:

W - Why would a website or someone you make friends with on the Internet need your personal information?

I - Be inspired! The Internet offers great tools for learning, discovering and creating.

S - Be secure. There are constantly new scams, hoaxes, viruses and spyware on the Internet. Install security software to keep your computer and data safe.

E - Evaluate what you read, see or receive through the Internet. Just because its on the Internet does not make it true, reliable or genuine.

 

At Sale Grammar School, we have a policy in place for acceptable Internet use by both staff and students of our IT resources. Click here to view the policy.
