Online Safety

Online Safety

The Internet is a wonderful tool to use but there are also risks if not used appropriately. At Cherhill CofE Primary School we learn about the importance of Online Safety. This is taught through discussion, drama, stories and other activities. Children are taught what to do if they experience something they don’t like online and where to seek advice both at home and in school.  

Below is a website that you may find useful if you need to seek support or advice. Each term there is a Online Safety newsletter which is sent out to parents/carers.

You are also welcome to pop in to school to speak to our Online Safety coordinator, Mrs Katie Burton.
