Online Safety

The online world is posing an ever-increasing risk to children and it is important that schools, parents and carers work together to take an active role in teaching children about online dangers and how to act safely when using the internet.


We are therefore delighted to announce that we have shown our commitment to protecting our pupils online and have worked with National Online Safety to deliver an interactive online workshop for all our parents & carers. The course can be taken at your own convenience and covers:


  • Information about online dangers and the newest platforms
  • What online risks to look out for and how to protect your child


Please find below the URL you need to visit to register your account. You will need to complete your details and select “I am a: Parent/Carer” from the dropdown:

This aims to help empower parents with the knowledge to protect their children from the dangers of the internet.

Creating a Family Agreement

It is important for families to be able to have open conversation about their use of the Internet at home, work or at a friend's house. Child Net have created the above Family Agreement Template to help start that conversation around positive behaviours when going online.
