Keeping our children Safe Online

The internet can be a fantastic place for children and young people where they can talk to friends, be creative and have fun. However, just like in the real world sometimes things can go wrong. In school we take the safety of our children very seriously and regularly revisit issues relating to e-safety in our lessons.

Information for our children and families on a wide range of internet safety issues, including the use of social media and how to control what your child views on the internet and what to do if you are concerned about your child's online activity can be found on the links below:
