At St Vincent's, we work with staff, pupils and parents/carers to create a school community which values the use of new technologies. Through enhancing digital learning, we encourage the responsible use of technology, and follow agreed policies to ensure pupil safety.

Our digital pupil leaders promote online safety and frequently remind the children through assemblies, competitions and safer internet day of the impoarnce of being safe online.
