Online Safety

Online Safety

During this time of remote schooling, your child will more than likely be accessing the internet on a daily basis. With this is mind it is vitally important to ensure that we provide them with a safe online environment within which to access their home learning.  We would therefore, encourage you to set age-appropriate parental controls on all digital devices that your child is using and use internet filters to block out malicious websites. These are all usually free but need to be turned on.

Please see below for some useful links to websites that can support you in creating a safe online environment:
