Online Safety

Online Safety at Clare Mount

The internet is a great way to discover, create and connect with people. Issues around the safe use of the internet and cyberbullying are few and far between but they do happen, in all walks of life.
Here at Clare Mount we proactively promote online safety and the prevention of cyberbullying. We have a dedicated E-learning support coordinator (Mr. Taylor) who can advise all staff, students, parents and governors on e-safety issues. In April 2015 Clare Mount was awarded the E Safety Mark and was re awarded it in 2017. This is an award for any establishment that works with young people to show the exemplary practice is being shown. Clare Mount passed with flying colours and did so well that the assessor suggested that Clare Mount be used as an advisory school for other establishments.
Below are links to some fantastic websites for both Pupils and Parents so that you can get the most out of your electronic devices in the safest way.
