At Heath Primary School the safeguarding of pupils is our highest priority. We are committed to ensuring our pupils are safe in school and online. Online safety is an integral part of children’s education in today’s digital world and it is embedded in their learning at school.
As part of your child’s curriculum and the development of computer skills, we provide access to the internet in teacher supervised lessons. We strongly believe that the use of the web is hugely worthwhile and an essential tool for children as they grow up in the modern world. By giving children the knowledge and understanding to safeguard themselves online, we are empowering them with a vital life skill.
Below is information about free training for teachers and parents to help us keep up with the times and know the risks posed to our children, as well as the best advice to give to help them to protect themselves, whilst they are having fun. Please take a look at the link below.
