At school we take online safety very seriously.

We have an Online Safety policy designed to protect and educate pupils and staff about the use of internet, mobile and smart technology.

The policy covers:

  • who is responsible for online safety and how incidents are dealt with
  • how the school's ICT systems are protected
  • how we educate pupils and train staff about online safety
  • our policy on mobile phones
  • acceptable use of the internet at school

You can see the Online Safety policy on the school website here, or request a copy at the school office.

See our Online Safety policy

If you have any concerns about online safety, either at home or at school, please speak to your child's teacher or the Principal.

Designated safeguarding lead: Nadine Horton, Principal
