Covid 19 Section

At Bexhill Academy, our students are growing up in an increasingly complex world, living their lives seamlessly on and off line. This presents many positive and exciting opportunities, but also challenges and risks. Bexhill Academy recognises that these challenges and risks have increased as a result of the Covid national lockdown and the increased access to remote learning and social media. The use of the latest technology is actively encouraged at Bexhill Academy to support remote learning, but with this comes a responsibility to protect students, staff and the school community from abuse of the system, both in school and at home.

Online safety is an integral part of safeguarding. Accordingly, the Covid Online Safety Addendum policy is written in line with ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ 2020 (KCSIE) and other statutory documents; it is designed to sit alongside the academy’s Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy and our Online Safety Policy. Despite the changes as a result of the national lockdown, our policies are fundamentally the same with the addendums setting out some of the adjustments we are making in line with the altered arrangements and following advice from government and the local authority. These Addendums will be reviewed regularly as the nature of the pandemic and local or national responses that involve remote education, or government guidance on how we should operate, significantly changes.  These policies can be viewed in the section below.

The Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) will take lead responsibility for any online safety issues and concerns and follow the school’s safeguarding and child protection procedures. Information for parents/carers and students regarding online safety can also be found on our academy website.
