ICT & Online Safety

In Ballykeel Primary School we are aware of our responsibility to educate pupils and provide them, and parents, with information relating to Online Safety. Our aim is to teach children about appropriate online behaviours, and to think carefully about various situations to help them remain safe and legal when using the Internet and related technologies both in school and at home.

Our Online Safety and ICT policies can be found in our 'About' and 'Policies' Section of the website. If you would like some more information about keeping your child safe online, or if you have concerns and would like some more advice, try these websites:

Net Aware:

Net Aware is the NSPCC and O2’s no-nonsense guide for parents on the most popular sites, apps and games that young people use. It equips parents and professionals with information about these sites, including the recommended age, the safety features and settings available; and the types of risks that young people might encounter. This year's re-launched guidance covers 40 of the most popular sites, apps and games, based on reviews by parents and children. It also contains Net Aware news pages, which highlight current online safety developments, trends and tips.

Visit the Net Aware website or download the free Net Aware app, from the App Store or Google Play.


If you need to report an incident regarding Online Safety outside of school, please contact the PSNI on their Non-Emergency number 101 and ask for Ballymena Station.

If you have any concerns regarding Online Safety in school, please speak to a member of our Online Safety Team - Mrs B Esler, Mrs J D Thompson or Miss. Kane
