    Internet Safety

    Our pupils are growing up in a world of ever-changing technology. While we feel that the use of technology is a largely positive aspect of modern life, we cannot ignore the risks that can be associated.

    Throughout the school we aim to teach children:

    •   about the impact of cyber-bullying and what to do if they have been affected

    •   to be vigilant when communicating online recognising that people may not always be who they say they are and to be sensible about what they share

    •   to tell an adult they trust if something is upsetting them

    •   to question the reliability of information given through a web based source

    •   to search responsibly for information while using internet browsers

    We understand that much of our pupil's use of the internet will occur at home, away from the school filters.

    Below are a list of useful websites, advice and resources that will help you to understand how to communicate the message of safety to your children at home:
