Online Safety

Online Safety

Children today have the world at their fingertips - a whole host of information, entertainment and fun is just a click away!

However, the Internet also comes with dangers that children and parents need to be aware of. 

Here at St Matthew's, we will:

  • Provide E-Safety eductation for children as part of the Computing curriculum
  • Deal with 'cyberbullying' as part of our Behaviour policy, even if it happens outside of school
  • Keep parents informed of the dangers of the Internet for children

It is very important that parents:

  • Are familiar with the games and sites that their children are using 
  • Monitor their children's use of the Internet 
  • Discuss the dangers of the Internet with their children and make them aware of the risks 
  • Educate themselves about the dangers their children could face online 

Platforms such as Fortnite, Facebook, Instagram and Whatsapp are not suitable for young children.
