Online Safety

Keeping safe online is really important at Seabridge Primary School.

Our online safety sessions reflect the importance of using information systems and electronic communication safely. We aim to keep our children safe online and also when using mobile phones, games consoles and wireless technology. We feel it is important to educate our children on the benefits, risks and responsibilities of using information technology.

All of our pupils must agree to the school's acceptable use policy upon logging on to our computers and parents must sign the agreement in the Home School links book to allow access to the internet in school.

Mr Bennett is our computing and online safety co-ordinator and is happy to help with any problems you may have online.

Online safety at Seabridge Primary School links closely to our behaviour policy, child protection policy and anti bullying policy and is strongly built into our Computing curriculum.

Below is a series of materials and links designed to help keep your children safe on the internet.
