Online Safety

The safety of Barnes’ school community while online is extremely important to us and we are here to support our families in as many ways as possible. Internet and online technology changes rapidly all the time. We aim to keep abreast of the changes as much as possible and share good practice as well as highlight potentially risky online activity, such as in newsletter items or at our parental internet safety talks. The pupils also receive lessons about online safety as part of their curriculum and can practice some of these skills through their use of ICT and computing within the school.
Below are a number of useful links to provide families with more information about the online world and how we can protect and equip our children as they learn to use the internet safely:
