There are numerous links, but they are very informative and useful so please take the time to look through them.
If you would like to discuss any internet safety issues, please contact school and we will do our best to help and support you.
The use of the internet and social media is not only very prominent in peoples' lives but is also extremely useful for education, therefore the school decided to look carefully at the safety aspects.
We arranged a visit from an I.T. consultant relating to online-safety. He held meetings with staff and parents and highlighted areas to be wary about in terms of online safety, as well as strategies to employ to reduce risks. The sessions were a success and we intend to arrange other meetings like this in the future. You may also wish to view our Online Safety Policy for details of the school's procedures to reduce risks that children face online and using social media.
Children are taught about Online Safety during Computing sessions in school, however you can help your child to stay safe on-line using activities which are freely available. See the links below. For any further guidance or support, please contact us at school.
