Online Safety is the term used in schools to describe the steps taken by children and adults to remain safe when working with the Internet or using a mobile phone responsibly.

Supporting young people online – Information and Advice for parents and carers
We take the safety of our students seriously and have systems in place to ensure their safety whilst using the internet in school. This includes educating children to the risks of online social interaction both in Computing lessons and PHSCE lessons. Our school internet connection is filtered and we make use of anti-virus and other security software to minimise risk. We advise parents/carers to talk with their children about using the Internet and mobile phones in a safe way. You can report any concern about unsafe internet content by clicking on the button below.
Communication systems such as social networks, blogs, mobile phones and email have become increasingly important in our daily lives and often have important benefits but, as we all know, there are also risks to be considered and evaluated. Access to the Internet can take place almost anywhere at anytime and it is important that students, teachers and parents are aware of the risks and know how to use modern technologies appropriately and are able to discuss the issues in school, at home and between friends and what actions to take when something goes wrong.
