At St Bernadette Catholic Primary School we encourage the use of technology to support learning and creativity. We take Internet Safety extremely seriously believing that all children have the right to feel safe and secure online.
Throughout ICT lessons we teach children how to use the internet and technology safely and how to behave in an appropriate manner. Children know what to do when they feel uncomfortable about anything online and we encourage this procedure at home- If you see anything you are uncomfortable with, inform an adult immediately.
