Online safety is an integral part of safeguarding children.
We teach children about online safety and online health as part of our well-being curriculum. In addition, we plan in regular opportunities to discuss and teach children about online safety, how to behave in safe and appropriate ways and children’s responsibilities as users of the online world, as well as what to do if they feel worried or unsafe. We also actively promote online safety with our parent and carer community, to support them with keeping their children safe when online.
