Online Safety

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child states that every child has the right to privacy (article 16). Also, children have the right to access reliable information from the media (article 17). 


The USF is committed to provide our pupils with the knowledge to stay safe online. The following sites may also help you, as parents and carers, to reinforce this knowledge at home.

Please see the Safeguarding page for more Online Safety resources for both Parents and Pupils.
