Safeguarding is embedded throughout our practice at Sandylands Community Primary School. Today, there are many technologies that children use and these are ever changing. Most children now have access to a phone, tablet, games console or computer. Through our Computing and PSHE curriculum at Sandylands, we aim to ensure that all children are equipped to be critical thinkers, positive influencers and be able to navigate the online world safely.
More information on our approach to Online Safety can be found in our policy.
