Online Safety and Safeguarding
At Lyme we work hard to ensure that all children can use the internet safely. Home use of technology by children can lead to better performance at school and an improved standard of work. However, it is important that children follow the simple rules for keeping safe when using the internet; especially in a world with growing access to chat and social media platforms.
