Online Safety

 At Weeton St Michael's we believe that:

• Children and young people should never experience abuse of any kind   

 • Children should be able to use the 'Internet' for education and personal development, but safeguards need to be in place to ensure they are kept safe at all times.

We recognise that:

• The online world provides everyone with many opportunities; however it can also present risks and challenges

 • We have a duty to ensure that all children, young people and adults involved in our organisation are protected from potential harm online

• We have a responsibility to help keep children and young people safe online, whether they are using Weeton St Michael’s network and devices

• Working in partnership with children, young people, their parents, carers and other agencies is essential in promoting young people’s welfare and in helping young people to be responsible in their approach to online safety

• All children, regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation, have the right to equal protection from all types of harm or abuse.
