Online safety

 

New technologies open up many exciting benefits and opportunities for children and young people but they can also present some risks. Technology is becoming all pervasive, touching all areas of society, with children and young people having increasing access to personal technology such as web-enabled phones.

We must ensure, therefore, that a framework is in place to help children and young people stay safe when using new technology, and to ensure that where problems do occur, children and young people (and their parents and carers) have support in dealing with them effectively.

It is through a combined school and home partnership that we can keep children safe. Please see our online safety page in the parents section for more information and also our online safety links for children under the curriculum heading.

Our online safety policy can be downloaded and read online by accessing our policies page here.
