Online Safety at The Centre School

At The Centre School we recognise the value of the internet and technology, however we are also fully aware of the potential dangers of misuse.

The Centre School has a whole school approach to online safety, which includes Acceptable Use Agreements for staff and students. Students are familiarised with these expectations when first starting at The Centre School. The curriculum also offers opportunities for students to identify and manage the risks they may be exposed to via the internet, social media, gaming, or use of mobile communications.

If you would like to speak to a member of staff directly regarding an online safety concern please contact The Centre School office on 01954 288789.

Parents/carers and students can also report a concern via the Report a concern button on The Centre School website or emailing
