Online Safety


Internet safety is always high on the agenda at Thistle Hill Academy. We have extensive security measures in place, which are constantly monitored both internally and externally, to prevent our pupils from coming into any potential danger or accessing unsuitable material.

Lessons are taught from Year 1 upward explaining and demonstrating how to stay safe when using the internet and working with technology. Click here to see an overview of the E-Safety coverage that we teach in our computing curriculum and click here to see our Online Safety policy.
