The internet is amazing, and a fantastic learning tool which now forms the basis of much of our working and social lives. From blogging to homework, we use it as a school and ask your children to also use it.  However, whilst there are so many positive benefits, there are sadly instances in which it can put our children in danger.  Part of our responsibility as a school is to protect our children when they are online - both in and out of school.


At school, the children learn about online safety.  During our online safety week we spoke about CEOP, the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre. Below is a button you can press to report any website that makes you feel unsafe, frightened or just not quite right.
