Online Safety

We take online safety very seriously at All Saints' and hope you find the following information useful.


Online safety and the curriculum

Online safety has an important focus in the new national curriculum framework and is incorporated into every computing lesson. Children are taught to:
  • use technology safely, respectfully and responsibly
  • know a range of ways to report concerns and inappropriate behaviour

They will take part in activities relating to Safer Internet Day and other campaigns connected to keeping safe online. All pupils will be asked to sign a Responsible User Agreement, a copy of which can be found below.

All staff have received online safety training from a local authority specialist. This means we can ALL work together to make sure your children stay safe online.
