Pupils have access to an increasing number of digital tools both in school and at home. As a school, we regard digital safety as a priority and ensure that our pupils know how to act safely, responsibly, and thoughtfully online. Staying safe online and age appropriate e-safety training is an important feature of PSHE throughout the school.
