Berwick Academy


Children are taught how to keep themselves safe online through a combination of assemblies and lessons from their class teacher.

In particular, children are shown how to:

  • use technology safely, respectfully and responsibility
  • recognise acceptable/unacceptable behaviour online, such as cyberbullying
  • keep passwords and personal information safe
  • report when they feel unsafe
  • understand their online presence and how to be in control of their own privacy

We understand that it can be overwhelming to keep up-to-date with new technologies so we highly recommend using the resources below to keep your children safe online.

Watch the following video to find out more about what you can trust online:
