Get Safe Online

The internet and other digital technologies such as smartphones open up new learning and social opportunities for everyone. However, we need to ensure that children and young people are able to use the internet and related technologies appropriately and safely. Everyone has a shared responsibility to support this: school staff, parents - and children themselves. This responsibility is about teaching children appropriate behaviours and applying careful thinking skills, to enable them to remain both safe and legal when using the internet. Research shows that many young people lack an appreciation of online dangers and of the consequences of their actions. The safety of children including e-safety is an essential priority.

Our school website contains a range of guidance articles and weblinks that we believe will support parents to keep their children more safe online. We look for and add new articles and other weblinks from time to time. Here is one of these from an organisation called Get safe Online.
