Online Safety

At Baxenden St John’s, we believe that Online Safety Education is crucial in developing conscientious, respectful and efficient internet users. We aim to provide a broad and balanced Online Safety curriculum in both key stages.

Online Safety Intent at Baxenden St John’s

In a world in which the internet has become a pivotal aspect of children’s lives, our online safety curriculum provides our pupils with the necessary skills to become safe, positive and conscientious users of the digital world.

What are the issues?

The internet is an amazing resource which enables children and young people to connect, communicate and be creative in a number of different ways, on a range of devices.

However, the internet is always changing, and being able to keep up to date with your children’s use of technology can be a challenge.

You may sometimes feel that your children have better technical skills than you do, however children and young people still need advice and protection when it comes to managing their lives online.
