Online Safety

Technology and the internet provide amazing opportunities for our pupils in the Fern Federation.


Our Digital Vision: 


At the Fern Federation we embrace the ever changing world of technology. 


All learners have opportunities to develop essential skills in order to become ambitious, capable digital citizens.  They engage in new technologies and develop into informed, responsible digital citizens in the continuously moving digital world.  Learners will have opportunities to challenge themselves and develop into resilient learners equip with skills that will enable them to take on the challenges in the real world. 


Keeping Our Learners Safe:


Online safety is an important part of keeping children safe at The Fern Federation. Online safety is taught to all pupils throughout the year, explaining and demonstrating how to stay safe and behave appropriately online. Hwb also has excellent advice and resources about Online Safety:

Our children are living in a world where they have access to a range of technology and information. There are a range of Apps they are using. 


We have talked to our Digital leaders to find out the most common apps our children are using and have some information posters on what these apps are and how your children may be interacting on them.
