We welcome you all back to
our new school term.

On-line Safety

Growing Up Digital

The internet is an extraordinary force for good but it is not designed with children in mind.  Yet one third of internet users are under the age of 18 and the part it plays in their lives continues to grow.  Despite good progress made by government and industry together on issues such as parental control filters and age verification, much more needs to be done to create a supportive digital environment for children.

On line Safety in School

There is an increased focus required from schools with regard to online safety.  Schools must have measures in place to protect children from harm online – including cyber bullying, pornography and the risk of radicalisation.  At our school, we recognise that the internet can play a very important part in children’s education, but can also bring risks, which is why we do everything we can to help children stay safe online – at school and at home.  This includes:

  • having appropriate filters and monitoring systems, so that no child can access harmful content via the school’s IT systems and concerns can be spotted quickly
  • teaching our pupils about safeguarding, including online

Reporting an On-line Safety issue

You can report an online safety issue using the CEOP button below (Child Exploitation and Online Protection Command). This button will take you to the relevant phone number and email address you need in order to report a problem. Alternatively, we are always happy to help at school with an online safety issue. Should you or child wish to report a problem, please speak to your child’s class teacher, who will then notify an online safety leader. The issue will then be dealt with and monitored by our online safety team and the headteacher.
