Online Safety

Due to many families now working from home it is important that we are encouraging online learning but also maintaining a healthy balance between online learning and other online activities such as social media, games and apps. Please ensure that children are aware of the online risks and age limits for using apps during this time. Below are some websites with some great resources and advice.

As a school we recognise that safeguarding against radicalisation is no different from safeguarding against any other vulnerability.

  • Children are supported in making good choices from a very young age, so they understand the impact and consequences of their actions on others.
