At St Joseph’s, we understand that the internet and online learning is just another way to live our school motto... love to learn, learn to love.
The internet can be an amazing tool for communication and collaboration, whether it’s working on a project together, researching a topic or keeping in touch with old friends.
However, we also understand that the internet can be a place where children can see information and communication that might not be true, helpful or kind.
There are some guides to common issues at the bottom of this page. But there are many ways we are supporting online safety in school.
Anything online which makes you or your child feel uncomfortable should be reported to CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre). A link is provided https://www.ceop.police.uk/safety-centre/
As a school, we would also like to hear any issues that you may experience online. This information, if appropriate, may then be shared with our wider school community. Please feel free to speak to a member of staff should you have any questions or concerns.
How are we helping?
