Online Safety

Got an iphone? ipad? use facebook? This section of the website is worth exploring to help you and your child discuss the advantages and potential hazards of the internet. 

This part of the website is all about how you can be careful when you go on the internet. We want to help you to know what to do if anyone is nasty to you and how you can be safer online. This will help you and your friends be safer online and make sure that you know what to do if you are ever scared or unhappy about something online. We have an Internet Safety Policy in school which is accessible via the 'Our Policies' section to the left.

Each year, we promote 'Internet Safety Day' and run sessions for parents, below is a link to the presentation we share with parents.

Share Aware has a number of video clips and guides to aid discussions between parnts and their children on how to stay safe online.

Be SMART on the internet


Keep safe by being careful not to give out personal information – such as your full name, email address, phone number, home address, photos or school name – to people you are chatting with online.


Meeting someone you have only been in touch with online can be dangerous. Only do so with your parents’ or carers’ permission and even then only when they can be present.


Accepting emails, IM messages, or opening files, pictures or texts from people you don’t know or trust can lead to problems – they may contain viruses or nasty messages!


Information you find on the internet may not be true, or someone online may be lying about who they are.


Tell your parent, carer or a trusted adult if someone or something makes you feel uncomfortable or worried, or if you or someone you know is being bullied online.

Visit Childnet’s Kidsmart website to play interactive games and test your online safety knowledge. You can also share your favourite websites and online safety tips by Joining Hands with people all around the world.

Refer to the school's ICT Policy (incorporating Internet Safety and Social Networking) on 'Our Policies' section of the website
