We are dedicated to making our school a safe environment for children to use technology. We know children have regular use of the internet, including social media, outside of school. So, it is essential that children know how to be safe on the internet, wherever they are using it.
We hold an annual Safer Internet Day. The children take part in various activities to help them remember how to stay safe online. We provide Online Safety lessons once a term during Computing lessons and this is also taught throughout the year in PSHE lessons too. All classrooms have an Online Safety display and teachers refer to these and the lessons whenever students use computers, laptops and tablets.
If you are being bullied online, or something else online has worried you:
- speak to an adult you trust, or
- talk to Childline anytime on 0800 1111 or at www.childline.org.uk

CEOP helps any child or young person under 18 who is being pressured, forced or tricked into taking part in sexual activity of any kind. This can be something that has taken place either online or in ‘the real world’, or both.
