Internet Safety

Internet Safety

At St Thomas Community Primary School, we recognise the need to work with children and parents to develop ways of keeping children safe online.

Every class from Reception to Year 6 receives e-safety lessons every term. We also have effective links with the outside agencies such as the police who come to the school to teach children about the importance of remaining safe.

Children are taught to report problems to an adult straight away without being judged and they also have the option of speaking to a peer from the ‘Tech Team’ if they would prefer to discuss issues with someone their own age.

You may find the following links helpful when teaching your child about internet safety:
