Internet Safety

Internet safety is at the forefront of our education at St.Michaels. We have certain rules and expectations that not only support the School's ethos and curriculum but also the safety of our pupils. Please see our policies section for the most up to date version of our online safety policy.

All pupils are reminded of online safety during their lessons involving ICT equipment and participate in special assemblies and work during online safety week each year. Internet safety is also a key feature in our PSHE curriculum.

For further advice and support, there are a number of recommended websites and resources providing a wealth of information. Here are some of them for you:
