Online Safety


Internet Safety for children has never been so important.  We constantly review and evolve our internet safety procedures to ensure our pupils are not only protected from the dangers of the Internet and World Wide Web but are also fully informed and educated on how best to deal with online threats and concerns. 

Being educated about Internet Safety is an essential life skill.  Providing children with the knowledge to protect themselves and their personal information is a key focus throughout our pupils’ digital learning. 


We have utilised the safety benefits of Google's G-Suite by providing all our pupils with their own enhanced Google account; with the significant dividend of  being able to maintain administration rights, oversee safety filters and access or block specific websites.  Pupils can create and manage their own bookmarks, web apps and page personalisation but within an environment that is designed with age appropriateness in mind. 


Having an e-safe environment is not as daunting as it may seem. Although the opportunities for connecting with others using technology is vast, and growing all the time, parents, carers and other responsible adults can make the environment safe with these helpful guides.


To ensure purposeful teaching and learning, our Computing Curriculum dedicates a whole term to internet safety, differentiated to the needs of the child.  Pupils are encouraged to discuss their own concerns and an ‘Internet Safety Box,’ located in our Computing Suite, is available and used to promote child led, child-centred teaching and learning.  Additionally, to maintain the high profile and importance of internet safety, the International ‘Safer Internet Day’ is embraced and celebrated, along with whole school assemblies.
