Online Safety

The online world is posing an ever-increasing risk to children, and it is important that schools, parents and carers work together to take an active role in teaching children about online dangers. Learning how to act safely when using the internet is an incredibly important part of safeguarding our children.

We are therefore delighted to announce that Acorn Education Trust have shown our commitment to protecting our pupils online by working with National Online Safety- providing resources for all parents and carers.  This work is being led by Kingdown School.
