'To help young people help themselves'

As a school we strive to ensure pupils are encouraged and are enabled to keep themselves safe online. Online-safety is built into our curriculum from KS2 and throughout school. We also ensure that we revisit Online-safety issues in assemblies during the school year.

Our pupil School Council and Safeguarding groups review and discuss Online Safety in school and help to advise other pupils. Our parents and Carers are actively involved and we keep them up to date with new online dangers and resources through social media and our Parent Partners Group.

Pupils in school have designed posters to be displayed in classrooms and all staff and Governors update their online safety training annually.

If you are concerned about any aspect of online safety please contact school and talk to us.
