Keeping Safe Online
How to search safely on the web?
Ashdell ensures that girls are given lessons and advice to help them search safely on the web. In addition to this we run a yearly Safer Internet Day as part of a world-wide scheme.
At school girls are always supervised when on the internet. At home, we appreciate this is not always possible. There are free resources on the web to help you protect your child whilst searching. Try one of the links below:

Child Friendly Search Engines
I’ve become very aware when teaching ICT that the majority of pupils use Google for their search engine. Whilst there are options on Google that you can select to help your daughter search with a degree of safety, there are also a number of search engines that are designed with children in mind that are worth a look at.
