At St Cuthbert and The First Martyrs' School, we promote the safe use of technology. We aim to equip the children with the knowledge and confidence to keep themselves safe online and when using a range of devices both at home and in school.
We also regularly hold online safety meetings for parents and strongly urge you to attend. As a school we offer advice ans support to parents if their have any questions or a concerns and work closely with our local Police to ensure the messages we share are relevant and up to date.
Below, you will find the latest issue of #DITTO magazine, provided by the website E-Safety Adviser, which this month contains articles about Cyber Bullying and tech addiction.
