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.
Mrs Hust is our Designated Safguarding Lead and can be contacted if you have any questions or concerns regarding online safety.
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:
