Online safety is an important part of keeping children safe at St Luke’s. We have extensive security measures and safe working practices in place in school, which are monitored both internally and externally, to help safeguard pupils from potential dangers or unsuitable material.
Each half term, children are taught how to stay safe and behave appropriately online. As a school, online safety incidents are dealt with in accordance with our Internet Safety Policy.
