At Bridgewater we are committed to developing your children as responsible online citizens. This means not only educating them in how to stay safe online whilst in school, but how to act responsibly when at home and when using technology without adult supervision.
Your children will receive ‘ Online Safety’ lessons as part of our whole curriculum with a specific focus during their Computing and PSHE lessons on a termly basis. Online Safety issues will also be reinforced during assemblies and through Safer Internet Day.
