Thank you God for the opportunities offered by the internet.
Help us to use it safely and responsibly…
Online safety plays a major role in our Computing curriculum and across all aspects of our learning. It is crucial that children and parents alike understand both the benefits of using online technology as well as the potential dangers and how to keep safe.
We teach our children to always be careful when they are using the internet. It can help us to keep in touch with our friends and help our education – but it can also cause harm – to ourselves and to others.
We offer support and help to pupils at school if they are having any problems online.
Staff are always to offer help and support; please talk to us if you need support.
