Online Safety

The development and expansion of the use of digital technologies, particularly the Internet, has transformed the way we communicate with each other.  Young people especially have embraced the use of technology and it is often the adults who struggle to keep up with the changes and impacts technology can have on our lives.

E-safety is about the protection of young people while they are using the Internet and digital technology.  E-safety is the responsibility of everyone, below are a range of helpful links for students, teachers and parents. 

If parents have concerns about the authenticity of who their child may be communicating with online, a referral can be made to CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection), by clicking on the button below.
