Keeping your children safe online
It is a high priority for everyone at St. Patrick's R.C. Primary School that we keep all of our children safe. It is important for children, and adults, to understand when they are not using the internet and digital devices in a safe way. We train children to become digital leaders. They are encouraged to learn about and spread the e-safety message throughout the school.
As part of the new curriculum we are teaching ‘Digital Literacy’ that covers all aspects of E-Safety. We also have a ‘Safer Internet Day’ each year,
If you have any concerns about your child and being safe either at home or at school then please contact the school.
You can use your computer, mobile phone or tablet for lots of fun things and to make lots of new friends from all over the world.
This section of our website will provide you with links to really useful advice on how to be careful when you use the internet and some great tips to keep safe. Please don't hesitate to follow any of the links below for help and advice.
Parent Info is collaboration between CEOP and Parent Zone and provides information to parents and carers about their children’s well-being and resilience, internet safety and a wide range of other topic matters like sex, relationship and body image.
