Be Safe Online
The internet is such an integral part of children's lives these days. It opens up so many educational and social opportunities, giving them access to, quite literally, a world of information and experiences.
Whether on a computer at school, a laptop at home, a games console or mobile phone, children and young people are increasingly accessing the internet whenever they can and wherever they are.
As you would protect your child in the real world, you will want to make sure that they are safe whatever they are doing. Like learning to cross the road, online safety skills are skills for life. If your child understands the risks and can make sensible and informed choices online, they can get the most from the internet and stay safe whilst doing so - particularly from those people who might seek them out to harm them. As e-education is so important to us at St. Gregory's, we seek to provide e-safety workshops with parents to update them on key topics such as personal data and social networks.

Each family is asked to fill in an 'E-Safety Pledge'. This is an agreement that is signed by school, parents and children to honour their part in ensuring children are well educated in online matters and contribute to a safe and respectful internet environment.
