Online Safety

Online safety is an important part of keeping children safe at St Lawrence School. All of our pupils are taught how to be safe and behave appropriately online, but we can only be successful in keeping children safe online if we work together.

It’s important that as adults, we take an active interest in our children’s online lives and show a willingness to engage in the digital world with them.

If you believe a child is in immediate danger, always contact 999 for police assistance.
