As our school becomes increasingly active in the world of digital learning, communication and content (blogging, Twitter, website, email, ‘the cloud’ etc) there is a real need to recognise that digital technologies are used by people in ways that can create very serious difficulties (or worse) for children.

We also recognise that an increasing number of children access a range of devices in and out of school. These may include access to mobile devices, such as tablets and smart phones, on a frequent basis. This tools can be invaluable but they also come with risks.

As a school we do all we can to safeguard children and to promote new ways of working. To this end, we regularly evaluate our policy and procedures to ensure that we keep up-to-date with technological changes and advances.

There is a wealth of useful online safety information for parents in a variety of sources. Please see below some useful links that may help you to tackle online safety at home.
