Technology is amazing, we use it everyday. At St Christopher’s School we want to use technology, especially the internet, to improve the way we all learn. But we also have to make sure when we use it, we use it safely.

With your parents, click on the links below and see what you can learn about staying safe online. Remember: if you ever feel unsafe online, tell an adult. At school Mr Payne, or any other teacher, can help you feel safe as we know who to talk to to fix any worries or problems you may have. You can also use the CEOP link below.
