Online Safety

Online Safety is an integral part of children’s education in today’s digital world and is embedded in their learning at school. We are also keen to support parents/carers to improve their own understanding of online safety issues, so you can engage with your children regarding their use of the internet while at home.

Online safety is taught across the school and is part of the work that we do to keep all members of our school safe. The nominated lead for online safety is David Hicks. You can download our e-safety policy below.
