Online Safety

Keeping Children Safe Online


With the sharp rise in the past 10 years of handheld technology, gone are the days where parents can keep a PC in one room and monitor all children's online activity. Many children have a tablet, games console, phone or laptop - or all of these! 

We fully support the computing curriculum and directly teach children about online safety. Children have access to a range of interactive technology at school.


We ask that there is support from home in terms of talking to your child about how to stay safe online. This includes ensuring any social media activity is carefully monitored. Many issues between pupils have an 'online' root cause. 


The following websites have advice and support for parents regarding online safety.
