Digital Council

St. Gregory's Digital Council

St. Gregory's Digital Council is elected every February on eSafety week. On Safer Internet Day, the serving council end their duties with a whole-school presentation, before 'handing the baton over' to their successors. Our Council is made up of representation from all key stakeholders in our school community: pupil representatives from Y2 to Y6; Mr Perree, representing Teachers and the Senior Leadership Team; a link Governor, who is also a parent. Meetings are held regularly, usually three times each half term, with several presentations made in classes, assemblies and at our annual eSafety Workshop for families.

If you have any concerns about the online safety of any children at St. Gregory's, whether it is in school or at home, please contact Mr Perree, Mrs Albon or Mrs McDonnell at the earliest opportunity.
