Internet Safety

In our rapidly changing world of technology, we recognise that E-Safety is an increasingly important part of our pupil’s education. E-Safety is embedded into our computing policy and is an integral part of the computing curriculum, taught explicitly in first lesson of each half term and continued to be touched upon in every lesson.  It is very much informed by our strategy of making Safeguarding central to everything we do.


At St. Paul’s, we recognise the importance of ensuring that our pupils understand how to stay safe in a world where technology and the internet play an increasing part in daily life. We recognise that many of our pupils want to use the latest ways of gaming, messaging, sharing and exchanging photos; this invariably involves access to the internet and inevitably encounters with people outside of their immediate environment and experience.


The computing curriculum includes regular lessons on how to engage positively with the Internet and other communication technology. Lessons are taught in an age-appropriate and relevant context and include topics such as:

  • how to safeguard their online identity and reputation;
  • how to protect themselves from encountering inappropriate content/contact and how to respond, should it happen;
  • how to behave in a responsible way that makes the Internet a safe place for others;
  • how laws around data-protection and copyright apply to themselves and others.                                          

 In addition, online safety messages are delivered across the curriculum and during Worship sessions.  The school also participates in the annual National Safer Internet Day.


By the time children leave St. Paul’s, they will have developed a broad range of the transferable skills and knowledge required to succeed in a technologically-centred world. Children will have a solid foundation in the skills needed to adapt to future developments in this area.

The purpose of the guide is to provide you with the information you need to understand your child's online world and help keep your child safe. We're encouraging parents to explore what other parents and children are saying about the sites, and form their own views about the appropriateness of popular sites.
