Staying Safe Online

E-safety is an integral part of children’s education in today’s digital world and is embedded in their learning at school. We want to help our parents and children improve their own understanding of e-safety issues so they can learn to use the internet and all digital media in a safe and secure way.

At St Michael's we teach online safety explicitly through our PSHE curriculum and in dedicated whole school online safety days to ensure all children in our school have the skills and knowledge to keep themselves and others safe online.
