Online Safety is taught in school as part of the curriculum, and is reinforced whenever children access the Internet. The use of the Internet in school is strictly filtered via county servers and the tightest security is in place at all times.
We do however, recognise that parents are the single most important resource a child has, and want to support you. We strongly recommend that parents monitor their children’s activity on the Internet, especially as many have access to personal connected devices like phones, gaming consoles, tablets and Smartwatches.
Please as parents, carers and family members do read the information on the links below and take action to protect your children when they are online at home.
