Online Safety

The world of technology changes daily and our pupils are growing up in an increasingly more technological world.

We need to ensure that our pupils are safe online.

The development of the internet has opened up a whole new world of endless possibilities for research, friendship and knowledge all the press of a button.

Unfortunately, it has also opened up the possibility of our pupils being contacted by people that they do not know, who maybe older than them etc. Through our teaching of IT in the curriculum and Online Safety awareness days, we hope to empower both our pupils and parents to talk more openly about their experiences online.

Ask your grown-up,

Ask your grown-up,

Ask for help!

Ask for help!

Use your tablet safely,

Use your tablet safely,

Woof, woof, woof!

Woof, woof, woof!
