Online Safety

We encourage all our students to use the internet safely, and aim to protect them from harmful material online. We hope to support families and our wider school community in educating our young people about online safety, including safe, appropriate use of e-mail and mobile phones, protecting passwords, logins and identity, and staying safe when using websites and interacting online.

Below are links to some information to help you support your child in using the internet safely, and some information and resources that might be useful for them to look at as well.
