Dear Parents and Students Online Safety We expect that all our students and staff are safe whilst learning and teaching online. We would remind you that students and parents have signed an acceptable user policy with regard to using school IT systems when you first stated at the school.

If students do this, this will be seen as serious and students will not be permitted to access live lessons and the police may be involved. We would also like to remind you that all chats that students have using the ‘Chat’ function on Teams are monitored, therefore, students should be very careful as to what they type in there. Further advice for parents is available at:
