Online Safety 

Online safety is a key part of keeping children safe at St. Michael's. This involves educating the children about safe use of the internet and associated technology and also supporting parents. 

As part of this we have created an Acceptable Use Agreement for pupils, school and parents. We ask pupils, teachers and parents to read, discuss and sign the document each academic year and it is regularly referred to during appropriate teaching moments. 

Acceptable Use Agreement

We regularly share guidance documents from National Online Safety on our school Facebook page

Here are some useful links to help us work together to keep our children safe online, click on each image to take you to their site:
