Online Safety is an important part of our curriculum to ensure the children are well prepared to manage the dangers and benefits of using the internet. Children are having increased access to the internet, smartphones and tablets. It is crucial that we all support children so that they can access these safely.

At school we teach Online Safety during Computing sessions and PHSE. We also embed Online Safety through assemblies and providing information to parents.
