Online Safety

We all want children to be safe when using the Internet or mobile devices.

In school we teach age appropriate units of work which address a wide range of e-Safety issues. Many of the materials we use are produced by CEOP (The Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre).

CEOP produce a range of materials under the "Think you know" banner which are aimed at 5-7 year olds, 8-10 year olds, 11-16 year olds, parents/carers and teachers/trainers.

Follow the links below for some excellent parent/carer resources:


This year the theme is "An internet we trust exploring reliability in the online world".


Using the internet safely and positively is a key message that we promote in our school and celebrating Safer Internet Day is a great opportunity for us to re-emphasise the online safety messages we deliver throughout the year. We would be delighted if you could join us in celebrating the day by continuing the conversation at home. To help you with this, you may be interested in downloading the free Safer Internet day resources for parents/carers available at:


Children in Key Stage 2 are given the opportunity to explore the Thinkuknow website which provides information, quizzes and games relating to a wide range of e-Safety issues. The areas covered include e-mail, online chat, text messaging, social networking and online gaming. Click on the Thinkuknow logo to have a look for yourself.
