Our children at Bare Trees Primary School use the internet on a regular basis as part of their learning. In school we have regular online safety lessons to remind our children of the importance of staying safe whilst using the internet.
At Bare Trees we have security measures in place to help safeguard the children from unsuitable material. Parents can also contribute to keeping children safe online by talking to their children regularly about internet use. At school we follow the SMART rules to help remind us how to stay safe. Please use this page to keep updated and speak to your child's class teacher if you need any advice.
Safer Internet Day 2018 took place on the 6th February. The theme was "Create, Connect and Respect: A better internet starts with you."
This academic year, Safer Internet Day challenged our children to think about their digital footprint. Children celebrated this day with an assembly and took part in classroom activities to develop an understanding of positive and negative digital footprint.
Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre, the celebration sees hundreds of organisations get involved to help promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.
You can find out more information by visiting:
All pupils of Bare Trees school sign an acceptable use agreement at the start of each academic year. This is a contract detailing the expectations of safe internet use at school.
If you are concerned about something your child has seen or experienced online, you can report it to the UK's National Crime Agency.

On Safer Internet day 2017, the children spent the day learning about the power of image. We began with a whole school assembly highlighting the risks of sharing images online and through apps. Throughout the day, individual classes looked at the power of image and tips to keep safe online. The children's ideas were collected and have become part of our image awareness display in school.
