Staying Safe Online

Westlea Primary School takes the online safety of its pupils seriously and builds into lessons and fun times the need to stay safe online, at all times.

Children are accessing the internet from a young age and may be more vulnerable when using the internet and social media sites such as TikTok and Snap Chat as they may not be aware that they are being bullied. Young people may also not be able to judge when it is safe to share personal information online or how to report bullying.

We recommend talking about staying safe online from a young age to start online safety awareness as soon as possible. Please share the following documents with your child, they are helpful in teaching online safety.
