Online Safety

At Old Clee Primary Academy we are committed to the use of computer technologies and recognise the Internet as a valuable tool for learners of all ages. However we acknowledge that computers and the internet do have the potential for inappropriate use and access to undesirable material and that we have a duty of care to protect our pupils. All pupils use computer facilities, including the internet, as an essential part of the curriculum and to support learning opportunities within school and at home.

A number of useful links have been added to help you to keep your child safe online.

If you are concerned about the safety or welfare of your child, or a child you know, please contact us on 01472 691887.

Our E- Safety team is Mrs J Barrett, Mr C Cranidge and Mrs N Hall.

Our E-Safety governor is Mrs W Prestwood.


Suggested Apps and Games for Parents and Carers - National Online Safety - In an ever-evolving online world, sometimes it’s difficult to make sense of the huge selection of apps and games available to young minds. The choices are almost endless and it’s not always possible to know which apps are age-appropriate, which games are safe to play and just what content your child is being exposed to. That’s why we’ve created these three handy guides for parents and carers with suggested apps and games that children might enjoy using to learn and play.

NSPCC reveals Instagram is the biggest platform used for online grooming

A fifth of the victims were 11 years old or younger. It also stated that Facebook and Snapchat were also used as a primary method of communication. As parents, carers and trusted adults it is important to note that this can happen on any online communication platform.
