Online Safety

At Castlemorton, online safety forms an integral part of our curriculum and is embedded in the children's learning at school. We also want to help keep our parents informed so that they can improve their own understanding of online safety issues allowing them to better support their children to use the Internet and all digital media in an age appropriate, safe and secure way.

Below you will find our Online Safety Policy along with a number of links which we think you might find useful.
