As a school we have a responsibility to ensure children are safe. This includes the appropriate use of the internet and social media which can present safeguarding risks. We ask you to ensure that suitable filtering is in place and that your children are made aware of the general online safety.
To support your child’s understanding of online safety, please refer to the Keeping Safe page under the tab ‘Children’.
