Online Safety

 

The safety of our children is of utmost importance, this includes keeping them safe when they use the internet. Online Safety encompasses internet technologies and also electronic communications via mobile phones, games consoles and wireless technology. By educating our children in online safety we aim to highlight the need for them to think practically about the benefits, risks and responsibilities of using information technology.

We operate an open-door policy for reporting issues relating to online safety and very much welcome children, parents and carers to come into school to speak with a member of the Senior Leadership Team about any potential problems.

The National Crime Agencies  Command (formerly the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre, CEOP) works with child protection partners across the UK and overseas to identify the main threats to children.  Please see the CEOP site for further advice about online safety and how to report abuse.

If you have an online safety matter you would like to report anonymously, please use the  link below.
