Online Safety

Knowles Primary School is committed to the creation and continual maintenance of a safe ICT and learning environment.

Our policy identifies the essential elements of our approach towards current and emerging technologies within all our schools and more importantly how our children and staffs’ relationship operates with those technologies. Educating our children and staff to have safe behaviors whilst being able to maximize the learning opportunities these technologies offer is key for all to thrive in the digital world.

We expect staff, pupils, visitors, contractors, and other employers to share this commitment by complying with our policies and procedures and to understand that they also have a legal and moral obligation to themselves and to others.
