We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. This applies in real life but also online. Online safety is a key part of the Computing national curriculum and Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE). Working with pupils and parents, we are looking to provide children with the ability to make good choices online and to promote positive and safe behaviour.

Online Safety is a broad term covering using the Internet for research, communicating with others (text, image and video), playing games, collaborating with others and many other things.

It is difficult to keep up with the latest trends and new technologies, therefore we are pleased to be able to share below some links to websites and documents to help keep children and adults safe and happy online.
