Keeping safe online is very important to us at Whitton Community Primary School.
We aim to keep our pupils safe online and also when using mobile phones, games consoles and wireless technology. We feel it is important to educate our children on the benefits, risks and responsibility of using information technology.
All of our pupils and staff have signed our acceptable use of technology agreements and regular updates, reminders and training is given to both staff and pupils.
Our e-safety lead is Richard Pitt.
