Internet Safety

(also known as e-safety)

The school computer system is run and filtered by South West Grid for Learning (SWGfL;www.swgfl.org.uk) who help to ensure that children and staff can operate in a safe and secure online environment.

Our E-Safety Policy can be found on our website under Documents & Policies.

There is an overwhelming amount of information out there about keeping children safe online, but following training courses and research, we have picked out some of the top ones:
