The internet is an important part of our world and it is used daily for a variety of purposes. Technology is changing rapidly and it is important that we ensure our children access these safely, at school and at home.
Online safety is an important part of keeping children safe at St Catherine's. We have extensive security measures in place in school, which are monitored both internally and externally, to help safeguard pupils from potential dangers or unsuitable material. Any online Safety incidents are recorded and managed. Online Safety is taught to all pupils through our Rising Stars Online Safety scheme of work. This allows statements from UK Council for Internet Safety's (UKCIS) framework Education for a Connected World to be taught effectively and to explain and demonstrate how to stay safe and behave appropriately online.
We can only be successful in keeping children safe online if we work with parents to ensure the online safety message is consistent. It is important that parents speak to their children about how they can keep safe and behave appropriately online.
