Online Safety

At North Ridge we have introduced an e-safety curriculum. This is taught within Computing lessons in Key Stage 3 and 4.


We have based our curriculum upon the Childnet, SMART E-Safety initiative.


You can find out more information about SMART by following the appropriate link.


We also provide E-Safety intervention lessons for students needing additional support.


If you would like to speak to a member of staff in regards to an E-safety concern then please contact Bernice Kostick (Head) or Gill Foord (Deputy Head) via the school office.
