Online Safety at Harlesden Primary School

At Harlesden Primary school, our children learn about staying safe online through assemblies, workshops, and the Computing curriculum. We follow the SMART rules.

Ensuring your child stays safe online at home is also of extreme importance to us. We therefore, advise you to be vigilant and aware of what your child is doing when they go online and which sites they are visiting.

 

NSPCC is the UK's leading Children's Charity and one of their campaigns is providing ONLINE SAFETY support for children, families and schools.  Please find links below for the relevant topics.
