Online Safety

Learning about staying safe online is very important. At Beech Hill Primary School we make sure our pupils are aware of some of the risks to safety that are online and what to do to stay safe. We have a set of rules which the children are expected to follow at home and in school to make sure they stay safe online. These rules can be viewed below and should be followed when using all kinds of technology such as mobile phones, games consoles and home computers.

Our Internet and E-mail Rules
