Thorney Close Primary School

"Where Learning Blossoms..."

Online Safety

Children at Thorney Close Primary School use the Internet on a regular basis as part of their learning. In school, we have regular 'e-safety' activities to remind children of the importance of keeping themselves safe online. 

We expect the children to actively learn responsible use of the internet through our ongoing work on being safe and ensure that the children have the opportunity to gain an age appropriate understanding of the potential risks as well as the advantages of using modern technology as they progress through the school.  As a result of this, we expect each child to demonstrate safe and responsible use of the internet.

You can help support your child at home by being aware of potential risks, and regularly talking to your child about how they use the internet at home. If you require more information you may find these links helpful, or by all means talk to your child’s teacher.

 E-Safety Links

It is really important that everyone (both children and adults) knows how to stay safe online. Using the Internet sensibly is something that we encourage all children to do during their time at Thorney Close Primary School.  Here are some links to useful websites where you can learn more about being safe on the Internet. - containing internet safety advice for those aged from 5 to 16, along with parents and teachers, this site is produced by CEOP (the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre). - UK Safer Internet Centre e-safety tips, advice and resources to help children and young people stay safe on the internet.




CEOP - The NCA’s CEOP Command (formerly the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre) works with child protection partners across the UK and overseas to identify the main threats to children and coordinates activity against these threats to bring offenders to account. We protect children from harm online and offline, directly through NCA led operations and in partnership with local and international agencies.
