Online safety

The internet offers unprecedented opportunities for learning and creativity. However, just like the real world there are risks and dangers students should be aware of.  Although the school teaches students online safety as part of the curriculum, it is vital that parents are aware of the risks too, and what they can do to develop a culture of online safety in the home.

This page has some helpful resources for parents that will enable parents to help keep their children safe online. If you have any concerns about your child’s online safety, there is always someone at school available to talk to you.
