The school believes in the value of technologies as tools for learning and acknowledges that teaching computing is an essential part of preparing the children to live and work in a technological world. It also recognises it's responsibility to teach the children and support parents/carers in understanding the potential dangers of internet use and in promoting online safety.

We talk to your child about e-safety whenever they use laptops and tablets at school, and we always remind them not to share any personal information online and/or to tell an adult if they see anything that makes them feel worried or anxious. The children also receive specific lessons about e-safety in PSHE and Computing lessons, as well as celebrating Safer Internet Day annually with varying workshops.


Here are some tips to help your child stay safe online:


1. Have the conversation early and often

2. Explore online together

3. Know who your child is talking to online

4. Set rules and agree boundaries

5. Make sure that content is age-appropriate

6. Use parental controls to filter, restrict, monitor or report content

7. Check they know how to use privacy settings and reporting tools
