Billing Brook School

Online Safety in the Curriculum

At Billing Brook we  teach our pupils to keep themselves safe, both in school and in the wider world.

We understand the importance of educating our students how to be responsible digital citizens. The Internet is a part of modern life, we teach how to keep personal information safe, social media, interacting with others online, emailing and what to do if we see or receive something we are unsure about.
