E Safety

 

E Safety is part of children’s education in today’s digital age and is included in the pupils learning. For details about E Safety in our curriculum please click here.

As we are supporting our children in improving their understanding of E Safety issues we also want to help parents so that our children can use the internet and digital media in a safe and secure way.

As a parent you will know how important the internet is to children as they not only use it to learn but also play, socialise and express themselves. The digital world is a creative place of amazing opportunities but the technology children use every day can seem a bit daunting and you may have concerns about the risks your child can face online – such as contact from strangers, bullying or the possibility of them illegal or inappropriate content.

Below we have provided links to a variety of resources to help parents keep our children safe online within the ever changing world of the internet and social media to help keep our children safe online.
