Staying safe on the Internet is one of our key responsibilities at Mayfield.
We do this by employing various technologies that filters the school’s internet connection, using classroom management tools and capture software, which is constantly monitoring a user’s computer.
This is more difficult to manage at home. At Mayfield we use forensic software, which also has a home version called CyberSentinel.
This allows you to restrict what content is able to be accessed at home and allows you to see if any inappropriate comments have been made over email or on social media sites.
We recommend you use such software at home to ensure all members of your family stay safe whilst using the internet.
Below are some links to websites that may help you secure your computer further such as safe searches on Google and websites with information on staying safe online.
