Online Safety

Online Safety is an important part of keeping children safe at Delph Side Primary School. We have extensive security measures in place within the school, which are reviewed regularly, to help safeguard the children from unsuitable content of the internet and any potential dangers. As a school, we are working towards achieving the Online Safert Mark from 360 degrees safe. This involves documenting and improving our already high Online Safety practices.

Internet Safety education is a crucial element of the curriculum and  is taught to all pupils as part of our Computing curriculum, using Active Bytes, explaining and demonstrating how to stay safe and behave appropriately on line. We start each half term with an Online Safety lesson.

The Internet is a very powerful tool and a great source of information, but with that comes some dangers. Staying safe whilst online is more important than ever. We have recently set up an Online Safety Group consisting of staff, pupils, parents, governors and technicians that will meet each half term.

It is important we work with parents/carers to ensure the safety of the children whilst using the internet. It is important parents/carers speak to their children about how they can keep safe and behave appropriately on line. We recommend the links below for parents. Check out the app guides at the top of this page.
