Online Safety

Designated Safeguarding Lead: Mrs Donnelly

Online Safety is an important part of keeping children safe at Glemsford Primary Academy. We have security measures in place in school, which are monitored both internally and externally, to help safeguard pupils from potential dangers or unsuitable material. Any Online Safety incidents are recorded. Online Safety is taught to all pupils explaining and demonstrating how to stay safe and behave appropriately online.

The most successful way to keep children safe online is to work with parents to ensure the Online Safety message is consistent. It is important that parents speak to their children about how they can keep safe and behave appropriately online.

If you would like to discuss any of what you view here further, please contact the school.
