Being Online

At this difficult time, children may be using online facilities more than they usually would, therefore please be careful and remember to monitor what your child is using.  Have a look at our safeguarding page for different websites for more information about managing your child's online presence.  Our children have been taught about online bullying and the impact this has on other people's lives but please do remind them that things said online are just as hurtful as when they are said in real life.  If you need any support, please do not hesitate to get in contact with school and we will do our best to help.

Safer Internet Day - 9th February 2021

We would normally be doing something for Safer internet day on the 9th of February and this years theme is ‘An internet we trust: exploring reliability in the online world.’   

Safer Internet Day 2021 celebrates the amazing range of information and opportunities online, and its potential to inform, connect and inspire us, whilst also looking at how young people can separate fact from fiction.  The campaign focuses on how we can decide what to trust online, supporting young people to question, challenge and change the online world for the better. It will explore how influence, persuasion and manipulation can impact young people’s decisions, opinions and what they share online.

The day will also look at the emotional impact navigating a misleading online world can have on young people and why it is important to create a supportive, critical and questioning culture online that encourages debate and discussion. We want to give young people the skills to support one another, and the strategies to spot and speak out against harmful and misleading content online.

Teachers will do some prepared activities for this but if you want to do your own activity, here are some resources specifically made to support parents/guardians at home.  Whichever route you go down, we would love to see what you and your family have done at home to raise awareness of this issue at home.  You can contact us through our Facebook page with comments or photographs. Thank you for your support and if you need any further assistance please contact school.


As part of Safer internet day, the West Yorkshire Police are doing a few things including a presentation by one of our PCSO- Cyber officers. PCSO Luke Carson is part of a ring fenced team, educating kids, teachers and parents around online safety messages. The presentation will be delivered at 10.30am on the 9th February 2021.
