Without any doubt, technology and its rapid development proves to be the most significant risk to young people today. At St John Henry Newman Catholic School, we have a comprehensive programme of online safety learning for all year groups through computing and our HRSE curriculum. You can see the HRSE curriculum here.
We ask that parents please support us in the level of supervision they give with electronic devices and internet use, particularly in terms of age appropriate content, filtering and privacy settings, cyber bullying and use of social media sites. Please refer to our Online Safety Policy below for further information.
