Online Safety

As computer and other communications technologies have developed, new dangers have emerged for all those who use them.

Schools have a duty of care towards their pupils, above all to enable them to use the internet and other communication technologies safely.

We take steps in school to help protect your child in the following ways:

Information to support parents

Making sure your child is safe while accessing the internet can be daunting for parents and carers.  We have provided a copy in each pigeon hole of the digital safety booklet, which have been produced with support from the government.  If you need another one, please ask at the school office. Below we have put some links to some sites that provide information and support to help you with this. They address issues of online safety, social networking and general safety on the internet.
