We value the importance of online safety at St John's CE Primary.
We make sure that you have opportunities at school to learn how to keep safe online and when using digital devices. We might even call the online world a 'digital playground'. It's good to have fun and enjoy yourself online but we need to make sure that we are treating it as we would in the playground at school or out in the community.
Do not forget that you have your net of people around you to support you. This includes if you need any help online or with things that happen when using your digital devices.
Can you spot what you have been learning this half term?
Think before you share
Check it's for real
Protect your stuff
Respect each other
When in doubt, discuss
