Sutton Coldfield Grammar School for Girls takes great care in ensuring the safety of our students in both the real and virtual environment. There is a zero tolerance of bullying and each student is taught the dangers of the Internet both within the school and at home.
Below are some useful documents and films to help parents, teachers and students to understand the possible dangers students could face and how to ensure that they can live and learn in a safe environment.

Attention All Parents – 14 Day Free Trial
Sutton Coldfield Grammar School is urging parents, carers and guardians to look at ways in which we can monitor and track what children are doing when using electronic resources, whether at school or at home. There is a free 14 day trial available. After 14 days you may either uninstall the software or continue to use it by paying CyberSentinal £25 per year.
What is CyberSentinel?
CyberSentinel is monitoring software that has been developed for the home. Sutton Coldfield Grammar School for Girls along with many other Birmingham Schools are already using the Policy Central offering from Forensic Software that protects children when using web sites, chat rooms, instant messaging and social networks. Most importantly it helps good parents do an even better job – by giving children the freedom to thrive online in safety.
Rather than just blocking unsuitable websites, CyberSentinel recognises and monitors keywords that signal danger, providing that extra protection for peace of mind. A weekly summary is produced for adults to see a record of all internet activity. Parents can log into their control panel from any internet enabled PC and see what their children are doing online at home.
