Online safety

Online Safety at Keyham Lodge:

Empowering our students to navigate the digital landscape confidently and responsibly is at the heart of our vision at Keyham. We strive to create a supportive environment where young minds can explore, learn, and connect online while understanding the importance of privacy, critical thinking, and respectful behaviour. Through education, collaboration, and proactive measures, we aim to equip our students with the skills needed to thrive in the digital age, ensuring their well-being and safeguarding their online experiences.


Advice for parents/carers:

It is important to have regular conversations about staying safe online and to encourage children to speak to you if they come across something worrying online.

Talk to your child about the importance of creating a safe online environment, including keeping any log-in details and passwords safe.

These resources will support you to talk to your child about a range of online safety issues, set up home filtering in a child-friendly way and set up age-appropriate parental controls on digital devices:

Tips, advice, guides and resources to help keep your child safe online:

As part of our #WakeUpWednesday campaign, this week we’ve created a free guide for parents & carers to help them understand the risks young people face when ‘sexting’.

Often referred to as the ‘new flirting for children’, sexting is the act of sending sexually explicit messages, images or videos over a digital device. It’s important that parents understand the risks and legalities around sexting to ensure that their children know how to protect themselves from harm. This free guide for parents & carers covers what they need to know to help keep their children safe, including the law, information about what to do if an indecent image/video has been shared, and more.
