Online safety is a core part of our PSHE curriculum and IT curriculum, but also taught in many other lessons when appropriate. As a school, we endeavour to teach pupils about the importance of staying safe online, using the internet appropriately, and what to do should they feel unsafe.

Apps, websites and other platforms are ever-changing and it is important to understand the specfic risks of using them, as well as more general 'common sense' guidelines and practice.
