Here at Marton Primary Academy and Nursery, we are committed to ensuring that children know¬†how to stay safe on line. This includes learning about the risks of “cyber-bulling” and disclosing personal information when using electronic means.

Many inappropriate websites are automatically filtered by our school internet provider, but unfortunately not everything bad can be blocked.¬†All pupils are monitored online and taught that if they see something bad or inappropriate when using the internet they must turn off the screen and tell an adult. In light of the recent concerns about the horrifying “Momo Challenge” we encourage all parents and gurdians to monitor what your child is doing online outside school.

We encourage you to read the school’s e-safety policy and Leaflet for Parents. Please click here to visit the School Policies and Procedures Page.
