Online Safety

At Taddington and Priestcliffe Primary School the safety of all of our children is of paramount concern. The children have dedicated online safety lessons as part of our computing curriculum and there are regular reminders of how to stay safe online during collective worship. In addition, through weekly taught sessions, our PSHRE curriculum covers key learning in this area. Please visit the curriculum tab and view PSHRE and navigate to year group overviews. 

 

The online safety policy is attached to this page as well as other relevant policies and information to help inform you how we keep children safe online.  As mentioned in the school newsletter and on the continuation or learning page on our school website, it is especially relevant during periods of remote learning that both children and parents know how to keep themselves and their children safe online. As well as a designated member of staff making regular phone calls during any periods of remote learning please be aware that live lessons and online communications will also be monitored. This is to help ensure children are kept safe. Please read our remote and blending learning strategy plan by clicking here or get in touch if you have nay questions.
