Welcome to our online-safety page.
The internet is essential in 21st century life for education, business and social interaction. As children move up through the school their access to various types of technology increases and it stands to reason that their exploration and curiosity increases too. The positives of the digital world overwhelmingly outweigh the negatives but children, schools and parents all need to be aware of various online risks.
Online safety is an integral part of children’s education in today’s digital world and is embedded in their learning at school. We also want to help our parents and children improve their own understanding of e-safety issues so they can learn to use the internet and all digital media in a safe and secure way.
In school we monitor the devices, filter the content and use technology to transform teaching and learning in a safe way. At home the same kinds of monitoring and filtering can be achieved. However, the increase in mobile technology and apps is causing issues for a small number of children.
It is important that you as parents/carers understand the risks and empower yourself and your children by spending some time looking at the websites your children use. Protect them and teach them that there are sites which are not appropriate.
Are you worried about online sexual abuse or the way someone has been communicating with you online?
