Online safety

Online safety is an important part of children’s education in today’s digital world. We teach it throughout the school. We want everyone in our school community to learn to use the internet and all digital media in a safe, secure and responsible way.

At school

As part of the computing curriculum, we provide supervised access to the internet. We strongly believe that the use of the web and email is hugely worthwhile. It is an essential tool for children as they grow up in the modern world. However, because there are always concerns about children having access to undesirable materials, we have taken steps to deal with this risk in school. Our school internet access provider uses a filter that restricts access to inappropriate materials.

At the start of the school year, classes discuss how to stay safe online and the dangers we may face on the internet. We then have regular lessons on Online Safety and our responsibilities when using the internet.

At home

As a parent you’ll know how important the internet is to children. They use it to learn, play, socialise and express themselves.  It’s a highly creative place of amazing opportunities. 

But the technology children use every day can seem a bit daunting. You might worry about the risks your child can face online, such as:

  • bullying
  • contact from strangers
  • seeing illegal or inappropriate content.
