Year 8 were fantastic this morning! Such incredible independent learning from them preparing for their assessments. I almost felt surplus to requirements!

Hugely impressed with Year 8 today. They worked so hard on their assessed group drumming performances and then had such incredible focus doing their evaluations (pictured). Impeccable attitude and behaviour from them. And some very talented musicians too!

Online Safety

The use of technology has become significant not only in our children’s lives, but it has unfortunately become a platform that facilitates harm and therefore is an underlying component of many safeguarding issues. As children mature, they become curious of the Internet and some take risks. It is therefore important that we educate our children on the danger of the Internet and what to do if things go wrong. Therefore, Harris Academy Sutton takes an effective approach to online safety to protect and educate the whole school.

The Risks:

The breadth of issues classified within online safety is considerable, but can be categorised into three areas of risk:

CONTENT: being exposed to illegal, inappropriate or harmful material;

CONTACT: being subjected to harmful online interaction with other users;


CONDUCT: personal online behaviour that increases the likelihood of, or causes, harm which falls under the following risks:

  • Child sexual exploitations
  • Radicalisation
  • Sexual predation
  • Cyber-Bullying
  • Plagiarism
  • Illegal downloading
  • Over-sending whilst gaming
  • Insecure privacy settings
  • Sharing inappropriate images


In order to minimise the risk of online safety, Harris Academy Sutton has appropriate filters and monitoring systems in place on our electronic devices. In addition to this, staff undergo regular safeguard training to ensure children are taught about online safety in PSHCE.

Whilst we will continue to safeguard your children in school, there are also a number of ways that you - as parents - can support the safeguarding of our students:

  • Talk about possible concerns and provide your child with safety tips for minimising risk online.
  • Ensure that your child fully understands the dangers of talking to strangers online and the reasons why they should not
  • Reinforce with your child that once information, messages or pictures are posted online, they lose all control of their use or further circulation
  • Make sure your child understands that some activities carried out online are illegal

E-Safety Top Tips:

  • Don't give out personal information such as your address or phone number
  • Don’t send pictures of yourself to anyone, especially indecent pictures
  • Don't open emails or attachments from people you don't know
  • Don't become online ‘friends’ with people you don't know.
  • Never arrange to meet someone in person who you've met online
  • If anything you see or read online worries you, tell someone about it.

Information and Support:

There is a wealth of information available to support schools and colleges to keep children safe online. The following is not exhaustive but should provide a useful starting point:
