Cyber Safety

In the spirit of Child Protection, it is a timely reminder for all parents to consider the CyberSafety of their children. As a school, we work tirelessly to ensure that our students remain safe whilst accessing resources online. At home, there are many tips and tricks for how you too can promote and ensure the safety of your child while they are online.
