Online Safety Support

At Mitcheldean we take Online safety very seriously and ensure this is continually visited within our school provision.

Fortnite....Whats APP....YouTube....Instagram....Facebook....it's a changing world in which we live and in which our children are growing up in. Internet Safety is a hugely important issue in our society where the internet is now so widely used, especially when your children are now more able than ever to communicate using smartphones, tablets and computers at home.

We recognise that the internet opens up a wealth of learning opportunities for children and that is an enormous resource for all.  It is vital that we provide our children with the skills to access this safely. 

We are equally aware of the danger the internet poses to our children. During their time at our school children receive lessons on Online Safety as an integral part of their Computing and PSHE curriculum. At home we encourage parents to take care to protect their online devices and those who use them.  We seek to share information with our parents to help them keep up to date with this ever changing world.
