Online Safety at Christ the King RC Primary School
This week we will be joining schools across the UK in celebrating Safer Internet Day 2022. Safer Internet Day is a global campaign to promote the safe and responsible use of technology, which calls on young people, parents, carers, teachers and more, to join together in helping to create a better internet, a safer internet for our children.
At Christ the King, we continually. throughout the school year, look at how we can keep children safe online. This week we will spend some time looking at respectful online relationships and how children can use the internet safely and still have fun......
