Online safety

When you are using the internet at school or at home it is very important that you stay safe.
Online safety, previously known as e-Safety, is an important part of keeping children safe. We have security measures in place in school, to help safeguard pupils from potential dangers or unsuitable material.

Any Online Safety incidents are recorded and managed in accordance with our Online policy.

Online safety is taught to all pupils explaining and demonstrating how to stay safe and behave appropriately online. However we can only be successful in keeping children safe online if we work with parents to ensure the Online safety message is consistent. It is important that parents speak to their children about how they can keep safe and behave appropriately online.

We have detailed below some websites to help parents/carers protect their children on line.
