At Our Lady of Lourdes, we take every effort to ensure our pupils stay safe when using the internet and other technologies. Each year we have assemblies on Becoming Internet Legends, Safer Internet Day and hold an Online Safety week. During this week, children take part in whole school activities. Training is also provided to staff and parents by our Designated Online Safety Lead.

Guidance for Children
Throughout the year, children are reminded of how to stay safe online. Children are all aware of what they need to do if they fall victim to cyber-bullying or if they come across something they feel is inappropriate or makes them uncomfortable. Children are also taught how to keep their personal information safe, what is ok to share online and how to create secure passwords.
