Online Safety

The internet is a fantastic place overflowing with knowledge, games and communities of people, and, just like pupils across the country, the pupils here at Marazion School spend a great deal of time using the internet at school and at home. This is why it is important pupils at Marazion School learn how to be safe when browsing online and becoming members of online communities.  

We encourage parents to set up filtering on their home internet. To learn how to do this for the major providers of internet please click the link below:

Setting up internet filtering and parental controls

We also suggest parents visit the website link below for up to date information on Facebook privacy settings, as whilst we know that no children under the age of 13 should be on Facebook, if they are then they should be educated as to how to ensure they are safe.

Yoursphere for Parents

In school, children learn about E-Safety through a scheme of lessons along with assemblies and workshops with parents. We also encourage parents/carers to talk to their children about how to behave safety when online, to ensure pupils remain safe when browsing at home.

Our children know to report any inappropriate content, contact or conduct they encounter online and this can be done to CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre) by visiting this school e-Safety page and clicking our report button below:
