Internet Safety

The safety of our pupils is paramount and one of the health and safety aspects which we teach our pupils is about internet safety. We have a network monitoring system which files a report every week with inappropriate words and phrases flagged to enable us to quickly deal with E-Safety issues.

E-Safety isn’t just part of school life it’s also relevant at home and we would encourage you to have open conversations with your children about rules for computer use, internet access and parental controls on all devices.

We hope you find the resources available on this page useful.
