Safer Internet Day – Tuesday 11th February 2020

Today  (Tuesday 11th February 2020) is Safer Internet Day.

At Three Peaks Primary Academy we try to educate the children on the importance of internet safety, which is done through lessons, assemblies and workshops. Recently, the school has adopted an electronic Acceptable Use Policy, a copy of which has been sent home with your child and a copy can be requested at the School Office. The E-Safety Policy is available to view on our website.

In order to support you with online safety at home, two links have been included below:

The first is a link to advice on setting up filters and monitoring internet usage. It includes instructions for how to set up parental controls on BT, Sky, TalkTalk, Virgin Media and also the safety features offered by social media websites and web browsers.
