Online Safety

At Milefield Primary School, we take the safety of our pupils very seriously. It is our prime concern. In an increasingly technological world, pupils are spending more time online and using mobile devices to play games and interact with others in the wider world. Therefore, we have signed up to a National online safety service which enables all parents in our community to have access to free online training about how to keep children safe online and 100s of free help sheets and guides too. Please click the link and sign yourself up to complete free training. If you would like any support or use of a computer, do not hesitate to contact school and we can arrange this for you.
