Online Safety at St Gregory's Catholic Academy

St Gregory's Catholic Academy recognises the value of utilising computing systems to support and facilitate learning. The school  Online Safety Policy outlines the steps taken and procedures that are in place to help to safeguard members of the school community when accessing computing systems. This policy operates in conjunction with other school policies including the behaviour, bullying, curriculum, data protection and safeguarding policies.

The use of computing systems is monitored throughout the school.
