Computing

At The Royal School we take the issue of Internet Safety very seriously.  The internet is a fantastic resource, but it can also bring risks. We work with our pupils in school to help them understand the dangers and learn how to keep themselves safe.

Internet Safety Week

Safer Internet Day (SID) is organised by Insafe in February of each year to promote safer and more responsible use of online technology and mobile phones, especially amongst children and young people across the world.  The Royal School incorporates Safer Internet Day in our annual Internet Safety Week each February.
