Online Safety is an important part of keeping children safe at Trinity St Peter's. It covers all electronic media and we constantly strive to protect and educate our pupils in the digital world we live in. It is embedded into our school curriculum, particularly in Computing and PSHE lessons. Pupils are taught how to stay safe and behave appropriately online. Our Online Safety Policy is available to read here.

Reporting an Incident

To report an Online Safety incident, please contact your child's class teacher in the first instance. These incidents will then be passed onto the Computing Subject Leader or a member of the Senior Leadership team.
The incident log will be monitored termly by the Computing Subject Leader, Senior Leadership Team or the Chair of Governors. Any incidents involving cyberbullying may also need to be recorded, in line with our Anti-Bullying Policy.

Information for Parents
We can only be successful in keeping children safe online if we work with parents to ensure the Online Safety message is consistent. It is important that parents speak to their children about how they can keep safe and behave appropriately online.
It’s essential to be realistic - banning the internet or technology will not work and it often makes a child less likely to report a problem. Education around safe use is essential.
Our school 'Keeping Children Safe in Education' Twitter page also shares online safety updates and resources.
