The Warblington Online Safety Portal was devised by teachers and parents to act as a one-stop resource for IT related issues that affect the children under their care and protection. It is designed to both inform parents of the potential of information technology, its advantages and its dangers.
To this end, any bulletins or articles on the site will use a traffic light system to highlight a development that parents should be aware of and act upon accordingly. These are:
This is a general purpose notification regarding anything from news that could be of potential interest or that parents and teachers should be aware of.
This is a positive development that parents should be aware of that could be of benefit to children – for example, a new app for developing STEM skills or improving creativity, or even something fun yet educational that you can do with your children over the school holidays.
This is a development that should not be ignored and understood by all parents. For example a new or existing application being used or abused that could potentially cause harm or danger to children or young adults.
This is used when there is a real and definite threat to children and young adults online that could or has affected schools within the Warblington Hub. Advisory notices and other communications will follow as and when appropriate.
