Learning about staying safe online is very important for teachers, parents and children. The internet is a powerful tool that has integrated into our school life; it is therefore vital that we educate our children in its safe use.
All children at Richard Wakefield take part in dedicated online safety lessons every half term alongside the regular reminders in all lessons that use ICT.
We are proud to be member of the National Online Safety company through which all of our parents can access their extensive support pages, webinars and course. Please contact the office for the access details.
