We believe the Internet offers a valuable resource for teachers and children, but it is recognised that there are risks and therefore must be used safely and responsibly.
Preparing our children for a successful and safe online future is a key priority.
School E-Safety Committee
We have an E-Safety Committee in school comprising staff, parent and child members. The Committee has created an Internet Safety Leaflet. A paper copy of the leaflet has been given to every child in school. It is a good idea to read through it with your child/ren. The leaflet can be accessed by clicking below:

The following sites provide lots of information on internet safety, as well as guidelines to ensure that your children use the internet safely, and may be of interest to you:

Safer Internet Day 2017 - 'The Power of the Image'

We were visited by PSCO Mark Cook who talked to Year 6 about online safety.
Below are some examples of work from Year 3.
Internet Use Survey February 2017
Thank you so much to you and your children for taking the time to complete our recent internet survey. The response was terrific and has given us a real understanding of our school's digital profile.
There are a few areas that you said you would like more information about. Over the next year we are planning to address these through parent information evenings, so please keep an eye out for these in the newsletter.
In the meantime, the information below might help answer some of your questions.
