On Line Safety - Pupil Zone

It is really important that everyone (both children and adults) knows how to stay safe online. Using the Internet sensibly is something that we encourage all children to do during their time at The Downs.

We have a separate site for children, TheDowns.ME that is a great starting point for learning online. Why not set it as your homepage on your computer?

Here are links to some other useful websites where you can learn more about being safe on the Internet.


Thinkuknow is the education programme from NCA-CEOP, a UK organisation which protects children both online and offline.

During the current situation they are releasing fortnightly activity packs for parents to use with their children at home. Use the link below for more information and to download the packs.
