Online Safety Page Updates

St Christopher’s School identifies that the internet and information communication technologies are an important part of everyday life so children must be supported to be able to learn how to develop strategies to manage and respond to risk so they can be empowered to build resilience online as an alternative to a blanket blocking or filtering of the internet.

As a result ,before the start of the Autumn Term 2017, we are pleased to draw your attention to our Parent Resource page available at /parents/resources-for-parents/. In addition you can follow the school twitter account https://twitter.com/StChristopher48 for regular links to useful resources.

Please find below some ideas to help promote conversations about online safety over the holidays:
