Online Safety

Having access to online information and the opportunities that the digital world can offer has many benefits and for some it plays an important part of our everyday lives.

At Saint Bede’s, we have policies in place to ensure our pupils are learning in a safe and secure environment, which includes being safe online. The online safety information provided here has been organised to help parents contribute to the process of helping their child to be aware of the potential risks associated with using the Internet and modern technologies and allow pupils to easily access help and support. However, as technology moves on at such a pace, it is sometimes difficult to keep up with new trends and developments, particularly with regard to mobile/games technologies, social networking sites and secure and safe accessibility to other online material.

Mrs C Walker is the school's Designated Child Protection Officer and Ms L Dickinson is the Online Safety Officer.
