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.

NSPCC reveals Instagram is the biggest platform used for online grooming
According to the NSPCC, Police in England and Wales recorded nearly 2,000 incidents of sexual communication with children during a 6-month period, and Instagram was the primary social-platform used by online predators to communicate with young victims. 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.
