Online Safety

At Bridgewater we are committed to developing your children as responsible online citizens. This means not only educating them in how to stay safe online whilst in school, but how to act responsibly when at home and when using technology without adult supervision.

Your children will receive ‘ Online Safety’ lessons as part of our whole curriculum with a specific focus during their Computing and PSHE lessons on a termly basis. Online Safety issues will also be reinforced during assemblies and through Safer Internet Day.

Unfortunately not all content online is appropriate or legal and with increased internet usage, it is possible you or your children may come across harmful content online.

Due to this increased risk, we have added a 'Report Harmful Content' button to accompany the wealth of online safety information on our parent and child online safety pages.

Reporting Harmful Content Button

Children under 13 years of age are encouraged to tell an adult that they trust about what has happened and to ask for their help in reporting this going through the 'How we can help' link below:
