We aim to provide our pupils with the skills, knowledge and understanding to keep themselves safe online within the school and beyond, now and in the future.
The school recognises that online activity brings with it potential risks including accessing inappropriate content, predation and grooming, bullying and threats, identity theft, financial harm and corruption or misuse of data. Our primary aim with regard to online safety is to give our pupils the ability to stay safe online – both inside the school and beyond. We aim to do this through education, embedding online safety in every aspect of the curriculum and working with parents/carers, siblings and others to promote safe use of technology.
The Principal is responsible for ensuring the safety (including online safety) of members of the school community. Day to day responsibility for online safety is delegated to the Online Safety Coordinator, who is a named member of staff with responsibility for online safety. This role is combined with the Child Protection Officer role. This is primarily a safeguarding role, not a technical role, although the coordinator has a good understanding of technical issues.
We also have codes of conduct
and codes of practice

Who is behind Parent Info?
Parent Info is a collaboration between CEOP and Parent Zone.
Parent Zone was founded in 2005 and has a track record of providing information, support and advice to parents. In recent years, The Parent Zone's work has focused on the impact of digital technologies on families. We provide information, resources and training for parents and those who work with them.
CEOP is the child protection command of the National Crime Agency. CEOP reaches over three million children and young people a year through its Thinkuknow education programme and regularly conveys its vital online safety messages to over 100,000 practitioners (such as social workers, teachers and police officers) registered to their network, who cascade these messages directly to children and young people.
What is Parent Info?
Parent Info provides high quality information to parents and carers about their children's wellbeing and resilience.
This service is free and ranges across a wide range of subject matter, from difficult topics about sex, relationships and the internet or body image and peer pressure to broader parenting topics like ‘how much sleep do teenagers need?’
In line with CEOP’s Thinkuknow programme, some of the content covers internet safety, but it all starts from the assumption that young people make little distinction between their online and offline lives and the issues for parents are often the same. The aim is to help parents help their children be discriminating, web-literate and resilient.
