It is important for children to learn safe and responsible online behaviour.

In school, children have access to computers throughout the day, which support them with their learning. Online safety is taught through our computing curriculum as well as through an annual focused day in February.

Our online safety policy can be found here.

There is an overwhelming amount of information available about keeping children safe online, but following training courses and research, we would recommend the following to help you support your child to learn how to use the internet safely, responsibly and enjoyably.
