At Sutton-at-Hone Primary School we take the issue of online safety very seriously for our students, staff and parents as can be seen in our Online Safety policy.
We acknowledge that the internet is an amazing tool however there are dangers and it is our responsibility, along with parents and other professionals to ensure that we educate young people about using the internet safely.
The children have regular lessons on online safety, we have an up to date security and filter system in school and we participate in the annual Safer Internet Day event held in February. The Acceptable Use Policies for children and parents/carers can be viewed via the link below.
