Online Safety


At Castledawson Primary School we are committed to ensuring our children stay safe online. We conduct a series of age appropriate activities throughout the key stages to educate our pupils about the risk of accessing inappropriate content as well as highlighting any contact, conduct and commercial risks. We promote good online safety practice by celebrating Safer Internet Day and conducting a series of assemblies for pupils and parents on how to act appropriately and safe stay.
