Online Safety

Everyone at St Bede’s School firmly believes in creating a safe and nurturing environment for our students. This extends to making sure that students learn how to use and conduct themselves responsibly in a new digital age.

There are many aspects of our lives now affected by Information and Communication technologies, from Internet devices at home, to mobile devices we carry with us. We should also not forget the pace at which these technologies develop into more innovative areas with many websites enabling amazing creativity and interaction between peers. Unfortunately, there are times when Internet use can have a negative effect on our students.

CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection) is an organisation which helps children stay safe online.

If someone acted inappropriately towards you online, or to a child or young person you know, such as being asked to do something that makes you feel uncomfortable or someone being insistent on meeting up, it is very important that you tell someone.  

You can report it to CEOP by clicking the link below.
