Staying safe on the Internet is on 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 users computer.
This is more difficult to manage at home. We use forensic software at Mayfield which has a home version. http://www.cybersentinel.co.uk/ 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.
