Technology and the Internet provide amazing opportunities for our pupils, online safety is an important part of keeping children safe at Y Bont Faen Primary.
Online safety is taught to all pupils throughout the year, explaining and demonstrating how to stay safe and behave appropriately online. We also have specific pupil digital leaders for online safety. Have a look at the presentation they created for an assembly on Safer Internet Day on the 11th February.
To support you as parents the school has annual Internet Safety training for families and Mr Jones is always available to help you with online safety, you may also find these two guides on how to set up parental controls useful:
