The internet and mobile technologies are fantastic 21st century learning resources however they can also present unique dangers to children, which is why we as a school take educating our pupils about e-safety very seriously.
Pupils are educated about safe internet use throughout the school year and are regularly reminded about how to stay safe online. Issues such as cyber bullying are dealt with as part of this, but also as part of our Anti Bullying policy.
The school takes part every year in Safer Internet Day where pupils are reminded about how to stay safe online during a set of school assemblies throughout the week. They also complete classroom activities designed to help them learn about the importance of using the internet safely.
