As teachers and parents we are responsible for the safety of our children as they use the internet for many different activities both in and out of school.
At St Matthew's all pupils are taught about how to stay safe in our ever developing world of technology. Our children learn about online dangers, the importance of logins and password to protect personal information and in KS2 about social networking skills. We are dedicated in preparing our children for the risks involved when using technology, by giving them strategies to use should they be faced with inappropriate material online, within school or at home.
Please use the suggested links below to heighten awareness of Online Safety with your child at home.
If you would like any help or advice about keeping your child safe online, or would like to know more about our Online Safety Curriculum, please contact Mr Grimshaw, our Computing Leader.
