Those of you who have been involved with the school for a while know that whilst I embrace and encourage modern technology I am also very cautious about the use of social media in school. It can be a great force for good and I know many parents are on various platforms for social media including FaceBook, Snapchat and Twitter; all I would ask is that parents/carers exercise caution when posting anything to do with school and school life. This is especially true of images that make contain pictures of children other than your own especially if you do this without prior permission from the other parents. Parents should not attempt to be online friends with staff as this puts staff in a very compromised position as it is part of school policy that they should be as invisible online as possible.

We are all deeply committed to keep our young people safe online whilst at the same time giving them the skills and confidence to use the internet to its fullest potential for learning about our wonderful world. We encourage parents to be vigilant and to monitor what their children are doing online and to be aware of who they are communicating with; we do this with regular updates and reminders on the weekly newsletter.
We have completed our first year as Childnet Digital Leaders and the course was a success! Our digital leaders successfully completed a 7 week training course to become qualified digital leaders for our school. They aim to educate their peers about online safety and have a significant role in enhancing online safety in St Theresa's.
You can find out more about our Digital Leaders below!
The Digital Leaders ran 'Cyberbullying' workshops during playtime and lunchtime for KS1. The children thoroughly enjoyed learning all about cyberbullying and the support available to them.
