Online Safety

At St Thomas of Canterbury Primary School the safety of all of our children is of paramount concern. The children have dedicated online safety lessons and there are regular reminders of how to stay safe online. 

The online safety policy is attached to this page. 

These are a few links to support any concerns:

  • Childline – 0800 1111 (a free, private and confidential service where you can talk about anything and get help)
