Corby Business Academy puts a lot of emphasis in online safety and ensuring that all students understand the risks that the Internet brings.
We have assemblies that remind the students of the dangers which they face when publishing content online, particularly on social media web sites.
Corby Business Academy takes preventative measures such as blocking all inappropriate web sites on the computers, laptops and tablets. The Internet usage within Brooke Weston is also monitored.
Most mobile devices can connect to the Internet whether it is through a wired connection, 4G or WiFi. It is a lot easier to conceal what they are doing on a mobile device.
As a parent, there are a few actions you can take to protect your children from the risks of the Internet:
- Knowing what apps are installed on your child's mobile device.
- Knowing the passcode to access their device, if needed.
- Understanding that once content is shared with others, it can't be taken back.
- Knowing who your children are talking to.
