Computing and Online Safety

Pupils at Melling St Wilfrid CE Primary School have access to a range of online materials that enrich and extend teaching and learning opportunities.

The benefits to teaching and learning include:

  • Access to world-wide educational resources including museums and art galleries;
  • Information and cultural exchanges between pupils nationally and world-wide;
  • Assess to news and current affairs;
  • Access to educational materials and learning resources;


Internet access is an entitlement for pupils based on responsible use. Children will be taught from an early age that they are responsible for their actions on the internet.

Internet access will be carefully planned to enrich and extend learning opportunities as an integrated aspect of the curriculum. Pupils will be given clear objectives for Internet use and will access material under guidance from their class teacher. Teachers will supervise pupils and take all reasonable precautions to ensure that users only access material appropriate to their learning. Parents are informed that pupils will be provided with internet access to support their learning and parents are required to sign a Parental Consent Form.

Teaching our pupils to be safe online is at the heart of our computing curriculum.
