At St. Michael's we take all forms of Internet Safety very seriously and have systems in place which prevent most of the harmful aspects of the Internet away from our children. However, no system is perfect and occasionally something will make its way through the filters we have in place. When this happens, the children are encouraged to speak to a member of staff who will then follow the necessary channels to prevent further children viewing the offending material.
The best practice is always for an adult to supervise children at all times and therefore monitor the content the children are accessing. To enable parents to be as safe at home as possible, here are some website links which should assist you in keeping your children safe on the internet:
