Internet Safety

At Mounts Bay Academy, we know how important it is to keep our children safe online. That’s why we’re putting internet safety at the top of our list.

We’re asking all our families to join us in this journey. It’s all about making smart choices about what our children see and who they interact with on their iPads, which we provide to each student for their learning.

We get it, the digital world can be a bit overwhelming. It’s not just about keeping up with your child’s digital skills, but also figuring out what’s okay for them to see and do. But don’t worry, we’re here to help. We’ve put together a handy list of tips, links, and downloads that are updated regularly. We think you’ll find these resources really useful in our school community.
