The digital world is forever evolving and the internet is a fantastic resource for us all to access, however we must teach the children how to keep themselves safe online. We must learn to understand and to use technologies in a safe, positive way and support the children to develop safe online behaviours (in and out of school).
At school, we keep children safe online through a strong web filtering system, staff awareness and vigilance, and an ongoing programme of assemblies and lessons to teach children online safety skills. We aim to equip the children with the knowledge and tools to understand the online world, recognise and report risks and ultimately stay safe.

Tips for staying safe online:
- Make sure you keep new online friends strictly online. If someone you don't know asks to be your online friend you must ensure an adult knows about it.
- Know how to use the CEOP Button and how to report it to the CEOP Centre if you are concerned about someone’s online behaviour towards you.
