Online Dangers

The online world is posing an ever-increasing risk to children, and it is important that schools, parents and carers work together to take an active role in teaching children about online dangers. As a school we have a subscription to the NOS - National Online Safety so that all of our parents/carers can access the advice and guidance. 

Act Safely

Learning how to act safely when using the internet is an incredibly important part of safeguarding our children.  We are therefore delighted to announce that we have shown our commitment to protecting our pupils online by working with National Online Safety- providing resources for all parents and carers.


The resources include Parents & Carers courses, online video resources and weekly guides covering a huge range of topics regarding online safety.

Online Safety/E-Safeguarding

The internet is essential in 21st century life for education, business and social interaction. At Crossflatts Primary we place great value on the use of technology to enhance learning and although the positives of the digital world overwhelmingly outweigh the negatives, the children and parents all need to be aware of various online risks.   Children need the support of school and also parents/carers to help build their resilience and guide them to recognise and avoid online safety risks and the education of pupils in online safety is therefore a key part of the school’s eSafeguarding provision.
