At St Augustine’s, we aim to provide our children with the skills and strategies to thrive and conduct themselves appropriately within the online world. With technology becoming a huge part of our lives, we want our children to be safe, aware of the dangers/ risks and to feel confident in handling any issues using the appropriate channels of support.
Our Online Safety curriculum (Education for a Connected World) links with our Computing curriculum and we aim to adapt to cohort related issues as the children become more exposed to different apps and online platforms.
We are seeing an increase in online safety issues and we strongly urge regular monitoring of your child’s device. Further down this page offers advice and support on how to effectively monitor devices.
As part of our subscription to National Online Safety, there are opportunities for parents/ carers to complete courses based on Online Safety. If you are interested in completing a course, please contact Mr Robinson.
