Our Online Safety Lead is Mr. Ben Langford
What is Online Safety? Online Safety refers to child protection and safeguarding of both children and adults in the digital world. It is about learning to understand and use technologies in a safe, positive way, also about supporting children and adults to develop safe online behaviours (both in and out of school). The Internet is part of children’s lives these days. It offers lots of educational opportunities, helps them keep in touch with friends and family and opens up a world of information and experiences. Whether on a computer at school, a laptop at home, a tablet, a games console or mobile phone, children are increasingly accessing the Internet in a variety of ways.
There is a lot of good advice on keeping safe on the Internet.
