Online Safety

The world wide web is invaluable in today’s climate as a source of information and a medium for communication. It is however, vitally important that certain protocol is followed to ensure personal safety is protected at all times. Online Safety is taught to children in school as part of the curriculum, through the use of Digital Leaders and assemblies, and it is reinforced whenever the children access the web. The use of the internet in school is strictly filtered via Smoothwall and the tightest security is in place at all times.

We encourage parents, carers and family members to read the information on the links below and take action to protect their children when they are online at home. The web can then be used to its full potential and greatly benefit your children’s education.
