Keeping Safe Online

Online safety is an integral part of children’s education in today’s digital world. It is embedded in our pupils' learning here at Bishop Ian Ramsey. We also want to help our parents and pupils improve their own understanding of online safety issues so they can learn to use the internet and all digital media in a safe and secure way.

 SMART rules

At Bishop Ian Ramsey, we follow the SMART rules for staying safe online:

Online Safety Parent and Carer Information Session

We recently held our annual Online Safety Information Session for parents and carers in our school hall. This was delivered by Martin Bailey (Primary Computing Consultant) and was a very informative session which we hope our parents and carers found useful.
