On this page you will find everything you need to know about keeping your child safe online.
It's important to talk to your children about relationships and the internet.
Children at Christ the King Catholic Primary school use the internet regularly across the curriculum to support their learning.
To develop children's understanding of the potential dangers hidden within the internet we hold an annual Online Safety week as well as online safety lessons within the Computing Curriculum.
Alternatively, we are always happy to help at school with an Online Safety issue. Should you or your child wish to report an Online Safety problem, please speak to you child's class teacher initially, who will then notify the Designated Safeguarding lead, Mr Delaney.
