Online Safety


Definition
: Online safety is defined as keeping and being safe from risks to personal safety and well-being when using all fixed and mobile devices that allow access to the internet as well as those that are used to communicate electronically.

This includes personal computers, laptops, mobile phones and gaming consoles.

Safeguarding against these risks is everyone’s responsibility and needs to be considered as part of the overall arrangements in place that safeguard and promote the welfare of all children.

At Larchwood we teach the acronym SMART. Please click the poster for more information about this.

Online safety is actively promoted throughout our curriculum and by all staff. It is referred to and referenced continuously and our children know how to keep themselves safe.

  3. How to report a problem
