Online Safety 

Technology is now an essential part of our everyday lives from the moment we get up until we go to sleep there will be hardly a moment when some bit of technology is not either directly or indirectly involved in what we are doing. Examples include: mobile phones, tablet computers, television, radio alarm clocks, chip and pin cards, shopping tills, bar code readers, central heating timers, microwave ovens. The list is endless.

 Our school uses monitoring software to make sure our pupils are safe when using the internet in school. Pupils must agree to our Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) before using our computers. This can be found below.
