On-Line Safety

Never before has it been so important for our children to understand the importance of keeping safe online. At St.Finian's, children are encouraged to use internet technology responsibly, recognising it to be an essential learning tool, yet to also understand the potential harm it can cause. 

Through specific lessons in our computing curriculum, our PSHE programme and through E-Safety awareness initiatives, we equip children with important safety skills, ensuring they know they can talk to their teachers or any adult if they ever have any concerns or worries regarding use of the internet.
