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.

eCadet League Winner Spring 2022!

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.

Parental Controls

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.
