On line Safety 

At Waingroves Primary School we are very aware of the importance of teaching online safety to all of our pupils. We have an online safety policy in place to safeguard and protect all members of the school community. Online safety is taught regularly across the school computing/PSHE curriculum. We believe that our pupils should be empowered to build resilience and to develop strategies to manage and respond to risk online both at home and school.
