Marlborough Primary School



At Marlborough, safeguarding our children is paramount to everything that we do. We recognise that the online world is posing an ever-increasing risk to children, and it is important that schools, parents and carers work together to take an active role in teaching children about online dangers. Learning how to act safely when using the internet is an incredibly important part of safeguarding our children.

As a school we have been recognised for our commitment to helping pupils stay safe online. We are now a National Online Safety Certified School. We have been awarded the National Online Safety Certified School Accreditation for our whole school community approach to protecting children in the online world.


Children are taught about online safety in a variety of different ways:

  • through dedicated online safety weeks where pupils complete a range of tasks and learning around keeping themselves and others safe using technology
  • within assemblies for both the whole school and within key stages as run by the Online Safety Lead
  • within computing lessons and PSHE lessons
  • through school displays and discussions.


Marlborough Primary School is committed to ensuring that all of our children learn to be confident, responsible and safe digital citizens. We all share a safeguarding responsibility to help keep our children safe online.


All parents in the school have access to the National Online Safety (NOS) website, where they can access resources include Parents & Carers courses (presented by Myleene Klass), online video resources and weekly guides covering a huge range of topics. To create your account, please follow and complete your details.
