Online Safety

Keeping children safe on the Internet is important for parents and carers as well as staff at St John's First School. 

Please find below some useful links and information on how to keep children safe online.


At St John's First School, we take our duties to protect children against radicalisation and extremism very seriously. However, we are mindful that our pupils are aged between 4-9 years and feel that it is through a broad and balanced curriculum underpinned by Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural ethos that will aid our children to grow up as strong individuals, able to make informed choices.

We believe that children should be given the opportunity to explore the issues of diversity and understand Britain as a multi-cultural society. Therefore, as part of our Creative Curriculum we provide a safe learning environment in which children can raise questions, concerns and explore boundaries of what is acceptable regarding their attitude to multi-cultural and race issues.

PREVENT forms part of the Governments counter terrorism strategy and aims to prevent children and young people from getting drawn into terrorism.

There's a chance that your child may meet people online or visit websites that could lead them to adopting what we consider to be extreme views, and become radicalised.

Our Designated Safeguarding Lead and Prevent Lead Single Point of Contact is Michelle Prince
