As St James’ we take online safety very seriously and pride ourselves on ensuring we equip all our children and families with the necessary skills to be safe online and become effective Digital Citizens. Every class starts their half term with a lesson on Online Safety and how to become a Digital Citizen to try and remind our children about the importance of staying safe online. We want children to enjoy using ICT but, at the same time, we believe they must be made aware of the potential dangers involved and understand how to use the internet safely. We have a range of policies and systems in place through which we strive to ensure that children use computers and the internet within a safe environment. However, just like in the real world sometimes things can go wrong. If you or your child are worried or upset about something which has happened on the internet there is help out there.

Our Online Safety Policy and Acceptable Usage Policy are updated on a regular basis in order to meet the ever-changing demands of the technological world.
