Online Safety at OLSA
At OLSA we take online safety seriously, through regular staff training, the curriculum, assemblies, pupil voice and discussions. We have a team of eCadets who promote online safety throughout the school.
Children at Our Lady & St Anselm's Primary School use the Internet on a regular basis as part of their learning. In school, we have regular online safety activities to remind children of the importance of keeping themselves safe online.

During the spring term, the eCadets worked very hard completing online safety challenges. The eCadets achieved first place in the eCadet Junior League. The eCadets have nearly 300 schools across the country active in the league. The eCadets spoke to classes about online safety concerns; made and sent out a questionnaire and discussed the results with Mrs Rainey. They also talked to the parents about online safety and completed extra challenges. They are looking forward to the new eCadet term.
The eCadets are holding a parent talk about parental controls on Tuesday 24th May at 3.15pm. The eCadets hope to see you there.
Message from the eCadets, "Hello, we are the eCadets and we are here to help you to keep safe online. We meet every Tuesday and discuss how to keep you safe in school and at home.
You can come and speak to us at any time and we will talk about any problems or questions that you might have."

Online Safety Information for Parents
As a parent or carer you play an important role in helping your child to stay safe online. OLSA send out information regularly to keep you updated with the latest online safety guidance. There is information below to help your child to stay safe when they are using technology and the internet. If you have any questions about online safety, please do not hesitate to contact us.
What are parental controls?
At home, sometimes children can be given unsupervised access to the Internet. It is important that you have appropriate parental controls set, which you can do through your internet service provider (ISP). Click the link below to watch a video about how to do this with the main ISPs. Parental controls are the group of settings that you can use to control the content that your child can see when they are online. Privacy settings can help you to protect your children from the things that they shouldn't see or experience online.
