Online Safety

Welcome to our Online-Safety page!


Online-Safety Curriculum Intent:


Today's pupils are growing up in an increasingly complex world, living their lives seamlessly on and offline. The online world develops and changes at great speed. New opportunities, challenges and risks are appearing all the time, therefore at Holy Trinity C of E Primary School we  focus on teaching the underpinning knowledge and behaviours that can help pupils to navigate the online world safely and confidently regardless of the device, platform or app. These include: How to evaluate what they see online, How to recognise techniques used for persuasion, Online behaviour, How to identify online risks and How and when to seek support. We aim to equip our pupils with the knowledge needed to make the best use of the internet and technology in a safe, considered and respectful way, so they are able to reap the benefits of the online world. 



Here at Holy Trinity we take our role of educating our pupils on how to be safe online very seriously!

We are the proud achievers of not one, but two online safety awards recognising our hard work and achievements in this area:


The very prestigious E-safety Mark and the SCC Internet Safety Award.

Our Online Safety Committee:


In our school we have an Online Safety Committee so that our pupils know they can go to various members of staff to seek support and guidance if something has upset them online. This way, if they can't find one of us, they will be able to find somebody else on the committee!

Our committee is made up of many stakeholders, including: 



Designated Safeguarding Leads:

Vikki Wall

Gemma Hunter

Sarah Hudson

Luke Bennett

Nikki Olson



Here at Holy Trinity we follow the SMART rules to help us stay safe online:

Our Curriculum Content.


Here at Holy Trinity, we have ensured that we have a comprehensive whole school curriculum response in place to enable all learners to learn about and manage online risks effectively as part of providing a broad and balanced curriculum.

This curriculum has been formed using the National Online Safety scheme, the UK Council for Internet Safety (UKCIS) ‘Education for a Connected World Framework’ and DfE ‘Teaching online safety in school guidance.


Please see the lesson objectives on the document below:

PCSO visits


We have close links with our local Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) who come into our school to lead lessons and sessions with all of our pupils. They focus on teaching the children about the risks of using the internet, how to keep themselves safe, how their actions can affect them and others online and who they can talk to for more help or guidance.

With Years 5 and 6, our PCSOs also held sessions with the children about the age of criminal responsibility, consequences, common offences and where to get help. 

Some of the children even got to have a nose inside the Police Car!

Here are some of the lessons in action below:

Parent Info: An introduction

This video looks at the work of Parent Info, a collaboration between the National Crime Agency's CEOP Command and The Parent Zone. Parent Info is an information service for parents and carers which enables schools to provide high quality advice and information their own websites.

The Parent Info website - - provides a regularly updated and free feed of information, advice and sources of support that schools can integrate seamlessly into their own websites using an RSS feed. This means they can pick and choose the content relevant to their parents and carers, or have it automatically update with new articles every week.

CEOP Button:


The Click CEOP button The Click CEOP button is an asset of the National Crime Agency’s CEOP Command. The CEOP Command works to protect children from the harm of sexual abuse and exploitation both online and offline. The button has been developed to offer children, young people, parents/carers and professionals working with these groups with a simple and convenient mechanism for gaining access to trusted online safety advice, help and support. It also provides access to an online mechanism for reporting known or suspected child sexual exploitation or child sexual abuse directly to CEOP.


Reporting to CEOP:


CEOP operates a 24/7 service for the receipt of reports. Reports can be made to CEOP by a young person or on their behalf by a parent/carer or professional working with these groups. Children under 11 years of age are encouraged to tell an adult that they trust about what has happened and to ask for their help in reporting this either to CEOP or local police. All reports to CEOP are treated as reports of crime and as such anonymous reports cannot be accepted.


Reporting Harmful Content Online


Reports can be made 24/7 through the online reporting forms and helpline practitioners will review and respond to reports  within 72 hours between 10am and 4pm Monday to Friday.


Reports can be made to RHC by anyone over the age of 13, so do ask an adult to help you with this.
