Online Safety

Here at the Three Rivers Federation we want staff, children, parents and carers to create a community that embraces and promotes the use of new technologies.  We promote the use of ICT to enhance our learning whilst teaching all of the children how to keep themselves safe online.  All adults in school ensure that pupils know how to report incidents and problems confidently and straight away.

It is equally as important for children to be safe online at home as the internet, laptops, tablets and phones are now part of everyday life. We want to encourage you to ensure children are supervised at all times at home, especially when accessing the internet.

  • When your child is using the internet at school or at home it is very important that they stay safe. We teach your child tospeak out and talk to a trusted adult if there is something they are unhappy with and to report it.
  • Your child would have been taught at school how to stay safe when using the internet on the computer, an iPad or a mobile phone. It is also a good idea to talk about these safety issues at home with your child.
  • If you are worried about anything your child has seen on the internet you can report it to the police by visiting www.ceop.police.uk.
