Educating pupils on how to stay safe online is incorporated into curriculum lessons for all age groups within school with specific focus in PSHE and Computing lessons throughout Plumtree School.  We take part in the national Internet Safety Day each year.

We want children to explore the opportunities and learning offered by resources online, both in school and at home, whilst being able to keep themselves as safe as possible, preventing problems and knowing what to do when they occur.

We send  National Online Safety posters home with our weekly newsletter to support parents with their digital literacy.

We follow the ‘Be SMART on the internet’ steps in school; please find links to support parents with online safety at home below.
