Internet Safety

As you are aware, the internet and social media has changed our lives and the lives of our children. 

At St Patrick's Catholic Primary School, we believe that safeguarding children is the most important part of our school ethos. We want to educate young people about how to use the internet safely and appropriately. 

On this page, parents and children can follow the links to websites for advice and resources for keeping safe online.
