Guidance

Keeping children safe is a priority at St Michael with St Thomas CE Primary School, and this includes ensuring safety online. In an ever changing and ever progressing digital age, we know that it is essential for school and parents to work together to teach children how to embrace the technologies available to them, whilst giving them the skills to stay safe.

This page offers links to different organisations and advice pages for parents, to help them in keeping their children safe online whilst at home, as well as building on the work done in school.
