At Bledlow Ridge, children use the Internet on a regular basis as part of their learning. Technology enhances learning, and at our school we want to ensure pupils get the most from it, by encouraging responsible online behaviour.
In school have regular ‘e-safety’ activities to remind children of the importance of keeping themselves safe online. Bledlow Ridge School has a commitment to safeguarding, and the welfare and well-being of children.
We know that children also have access to the Internet when they are out of school.
