Online Safety

Staying safe online has never been more important or relevant to our pupils and families. It is a life skill taught in school and needs to be reinforced at home. Below are a number of links that will help you, as a parent to support your child at home.
 
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.
