Online Safety

We cover online safety awareness within the curriculum in both key stages, specifically in PSHE and ICT.

As the Internet has grown, the issues have become broader, touching not only the PC, but mobile phones and gaming.

On this page, you will find several resources, for both parents/carers and children that highlight some of the issues related to online safety. We hope you find them useful.
