Online Safety

At Bowmandale Primary School we are pro-active in educating our pupils about online issues, teaching them the appropriate behaviours and critical thinking skills needed to enable them to remain safe when using the internet and related technologies in and beyond the classroom environment. Online safety is embedded within our curriculum, practices and online presence, and we continually look for new opportunities to promote online safety. You can download the online safety guides the school has produced and follow the links to some informative websites below.
