At Gillibrand we want staff, children, parents and carers to create a school community that embraces the use of new technologies.  We promote the use of ICT to enhance learning and thinking and teach all of the children how to keep themselves safe.  All adults in school ensure that pupils know how to report incidents and problems confidently and straight away.

At home, many children use computers to play games and learn.  We want to encourage you to ensure children are supervised at all times at home, especially when accessing the internet. This page on our web site is to provide you with links to information and support to help keep your child safe online.
