Online Safety

With more children than ever having access to the internet, it is crucial that we understand how to protect our children online. At the heart of this is helping children to understand how to protect themselves and manage the risks that they face when online. Below you will find some of the learning the children have done in school to help raise awareness of these.


We have also put together a series of links to websites that can provide you and your child with all the information you need to stay safe online.
