The Internet is such a useful tool and something we use every day. However, there are many pitfalls and dangers in the online world. In school, the children are taught how to stay safe online, the pros and cons of using online technology and a clear set of rules to follow. Here are some helpful websites that give you information, games to play with your children and advice on how to keep your children safe online. Please contact school if you wish to discuss any issues related to online safety or you wish to see our online safety policy.
