Staying Safe Online

With technology changing at such a rapid pace, we know how difficult it can be to keep our children safe online.

At Overfields Primary, we take your children’s online safety very seriously and want to work in partnership with parents on this very important issue. We will keep this page up to date with the latest information that will answer your questions and support you in keeping your children safe when online at home as well as at school.
