Online Safety

Here is our school's Online Safety policy:

Online Safety Policy

This policy applies to all staff, students, volunteers, parents/carers, visitors, community users working in the school, who have access to and are users of our school’s IT systems.

Through our weekly PSHE and Computing lessons, we discuss with our children how the internet can be a really helpful tool for people all around the world but how sometimes things we see on the internet might not be true. So, because we can’t be sure that everything that we see on the internet is true, we have to be careful about what we look at and what we believe. When we use the internet safely, it can help us learn more and have fun. When the internet is not used safely, it can be a bit scary. Lots of things on the internet are meant for adults and are not meant for children to see or use, so it is important that children don’t look at them. As a school we have come up with and agreed on what to do and who to tell if they saw something online that upset them.
