'Let your light shine' (Matthew 5:16)

Online Safety

Children at Thurnham Glasson C of E Primary School have access to a range of online materials that enrich and extend teaching and learning opportunities. The benefits to teaching and learning are many and varied.


Children will be given clear objectives for internet use and will access material under guidance from their class teacher. Teachers and support staff will supervise pupils and take all reasonable precautions to ensure that users only access material appropriate to their learning.


Children are taught to use technology safely and respectfully, keeping personal information private. Children are taught to identify where to go for help and support, and when they have concerns about content or contact on the internet or other online technologies.


Children are taught to be careful when they are using the internet. They know it can help them to keep in touch with their friends and help their education – but it can also cause harm – to themselves and to others.

They know that help is always available at school if they are having any problems online and should not be afraid to talk to their teacher or another adult at school.
