Internet Safety

In June 2016 we were pleased to welcome Paul Hay into school to talk to parents about Internet Safety. Paul has been a Principal IT Consultant for over 25 years, working for some of the world’s leading software and services companies including Microsoft, where he trained to ambassador level with CEOPs (Child Exploitation and Online Protection). In 2009 he set up his own business, PCLS Training, and now works directly with schools. We are grateful to Paul for providing us with a number of web links which parents/guardians can access for advice on how to help keep their children safe whenever and wherever they go on line. Should parents wish to contact Paul for further information he is happy to receive emails (paul.hay@pclstraining.com)

Parents may also find it useful to read the following document which was issued by the Junior School in December 2016.
