At St. Mary's we are committed to ensuring pupils understand the importance of staying safe online - both inside and outside of school. We also want to support parents with this important job at home.
Online Safety at school:
Every year, each class has a series of lessons on Online Safety. We also actively support Safer Internet Day each year, which is promoted by the UK Safer Internet Centre. Please see the end of the page for information on Safer Internet Day 2021.
