The Internet is a brilliant resource for learning. Whilst we would never allow a child to cross a road without first teaching them road safety, the same principles must be applied when using technology.
E-Safety is about being positive about the good things the internet has to offer and to show an understanding of how our children use the internet, managing the risks to which they are exposed (just like we try to do in everything else).
Please find below a wealth of resources you can use with your child. In school E-safety is threaded throughout our Curriculum and we hold a dedicated E-safety week each academic year.
All of our children sign an Acceptable Use Policy.
