St Richards RC Primary School Online Safety Mark Report 4 Oct 2017 (Click here to view our Report)

At St. Richard’s we understand that the Internet is a fantastic place for researching and socialising. Whilst we encourage our pupils to use the Internet, we are also aware that there are potential online dangers which may affect our pupils. We want to support the children and our parents in keeping safe by offering information and support on the wide range of online safety issues that might affect the whole family.

E Safety Mark

As a school we are currently working towards the E Safety Mark. As part of this process we are required to use the 360 Degree Safe tool to guide our progress. This process demonstrates our commitment to online safety as a part of our curriculum.
