Tips for keeping yourself safe

Open All Close All

  • Passwords
    Do not leave computers logged in when you are away from your desk, and make sure that your passwords are sufficiently strong and kept private.
  • Communicate
    Make sure that you report any incidents to your line manager or member of SLT in a timely manner.
  • Privacy Matters
    Make sure that your privacy settings are set to 'Friends Only' on social networking websites, and remember that friends of friends may be able to see content that you post via their profiles. Consider carefully the implications of befriending parents of students.
  • Online Reputation
    Think about the information that you make available online. Do not post anything publicly that you would not want colleagues, parents or pupils to see.
  • Stay safe on the move
    Don't forget about mobile devices. Smartphone apps for social networking sites are increasingly popular, but do make sure that these respect your privacy settings.
