Online safety is an important part of keeping children safe at Winscombe Primary School. Online safety is taught to all pupils, explaining and demonstrating how to stay safe and behave appropriately online.
To ensure the online safety message is consistent, it is important that parents speak to their children about how they can keep safe and behave appropriately online.
If you have any concerns about online safety, please speak to your child’s teacher.
