Arundel CofE Primary School

Online Safety

Internet safety is always high on the agenda at Arundel Church of England Primary School.      We have security measures in place, which are constantly monitored both internally and externally, to prevent our pupils from coming into any potential danger or accessing unsuitable material.

Lessons are taught from Year 1 upward explaining and demonstrating how to stay safe when using the Internet and working with technology.

Lots of information is contained on the school app  to help you talk to your children about how they use the Internet, on the computer and on mobile devices.  Help them to stay aware of the pitfalls and dangers and ensure they use the Internet wisely and with respect to others.

Please take a look at the current edition of  ACE Online Safety newsletter.
