Online Safety at Freezywater St George's

Online Safety

Online Safety is an important part of keeping children safe at
Freezywater St George's. We have extensive security measures 
in place in school, which are monitored both internally and 
externally, to help safeguard pupils from potential dangers or 
unsuitable material. Any Online Safety incidents are recorded
and managed in accordance with our Online Safety policy. 
Online Safety is taught to all pupils explaining and 
demonstrating how to stay safe and behave appropriately 
online.

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.
