The internet is becoming a more and more important part of our childrens lives. Along with the wonderful benefits of being on-line come some dangers. At St Winefide’s we are working hard to keep your children safe when using new technology. The children’s internet access is both filtered and monitored. To further enhance our provision an ongoing programme of education is taking place in partnership with the local cyber safety PCSO. Children in lower and upper key stage 2 have received input on being safe on-line from Miss Samina Potrick (PCSO with Bradford Police’s Cyber Safety Team).
The school has also held an internet safety day where all our children took part in activities designed to keep them safe online. Here is a gallery of images from the day.
