Online Safety

The use of the internet and being ‘online’ are part and parcel of modern life. Just as we have to teach our children to be safe when they are playing out, it is just as important for them to learn to stay safe in the online world. This site contains information for parents, carers and children to help keep safe online in school, at home and when using mobile technologies.

Online Safety Newsletters

Each month, school issues an online safety newletter for children and parents, which contain a wealth of knowledge, information and tips on the use of the latest apps and technologies. To view a newsletter, please click on the link below.
