Castle Hill School works with staff, pupils and parents / carers to create a school community which values the use of new technologies to enhance learning. As part of this process we encourage the responsible use of ICT and follow agreed policies to minimise potential online safety risks.

We discuss, monitor and review our online safety policy on a regular basis, linking it with other relevant policies such as those related to Safeguarding and Pupil Behaviour.

We support staff in the use of ICT as an essential tool for enhancing learning and communication and ensure that pupils are able to access technology in a safe manner.
