We believe that educating our children about being safe on-line is very important. As part of our Computing curriculum all children from Foundation Stage to Year Six follow our Online Safety Scheme of Work focusing on identifying some of the risks about being on-line and how to keep themselves safe.
Online Safety policies and procedures
The school has an online safety policy which is agreed by staff, governors and in consultation with parents and children. This policy can be accessed here: Online Safety Policy
Parents of pupils in KS1 are asked to sign Responsible Internet Use permission slips on behalf of their children to use the internet and have work published on the school website. Parents of KS2 children are also asked to sign the Responsible Internet Use permission slip
