Online Safety is of paramount importance to us at Turners Hill CofE Primary School. This page serves as a guide to provide parents and carers with a background on how we work with our students to keep safe when using digital technologies. As our children are now living in a digital world and are becoming digital natives within it, it has become increasingly important that as Educators, Parents and Carers we are aware of their activities and how we can protect them against possible threats. If you have any queries regarding online, please contact your child’s classteacher or the headteacher.
