Keeping Children Safe Online

Teaching children about how to be safe online is an important part of our work to safeguard children’s well-being and staff have regular training to ensure their knoweldge keeps pace with the ever changing world of technology.


In school, we have filtering and monitoring systems built into our IT system to reduce the risk of children encountering inappropriate content online and to alert school leaders if they do. The children know these systems are in place to help to keep them safe.


We know that in the modern world, children will spend a significant amount of time online and so we want to equip them with the knowledge and skills they need to stay safe and protect their identity. We teach this as part of our computing curriculum and our PSHE curriculum.


We regularly re-visit key messages regarding online safety in our assemblies and invite external visitors into school, such as our local PCSO, to reinforce these messages with children.


We also take part in whole-school and national events relating to online safety, such as Safer Internet Day.
