Child Protection & Safeguarding Policy (updated April 2023)

Online safety is an important part of keeping children safe at Dane Court Grammar School, and is taken very seriously.

We have a strong culture of protecting students and understand that technology itself can be a valuable tool, but it does need to be respected. Our students have signed our acceptable use policy and this covers school devices and students’ devices when used in school.

Our students are taught how to be safe and behave online, but we can only be successful in achieving this, if school, students and parents work together. Parents can familiarise themselves with ways to protect their children online, in the websites listed below. Please ensure that your children have privacy settings maximised and that they know who they are accepting and talking to online.
