Online Safety

At St James’, we realise that the Internet has significantly changed the way children interact with the world. They have access to in-depth knowledge, tools to express their creativity and people from all over the world. We promote this tool and provide stimulating activities for children to develop their skills in this area of the curriculum. However, along with this fascinating new way to connect with the world, the Internet offers new risks, including:

  • Cyber- bullying 

  • Exposure to inappropriate material 

  • Online Predators 

  • Revealing personal information 

It is important to ensure that all children are aware of these risks and learn to use the Internet safely and responsibly.

As a school we:

  • Ensure all children are aware of the risks online 

  • Ensure children feel safe to report incidents 

  • Attend Online- Safety meetings/ training 

  • Provide staff and parental training

  • Discuss and review the Online Safety Policy 

The children have been busy learning how to keep themselves safe online.
