Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy and Procedures
Each February, we hold a special Safer Internet Day. Whilst we always take care when using IT in school, and safe use of the internet is integral to our teaching of computing, each class has an extra special day learning about keeping themselves safe when using computers and the internet. We also have "Digital Champions" in school. They are specially trained Y5 pupils who help their peers understand about keeping safe on line. We have good links with the police and the NSPCC, who regularly support us in promoting safe use of the internet with the children and with parents.
