E-Safety

E-safety is an important part of keeping our children safe. E-safety is taught to all pupils, explaining and demonstrating how to stay safe and behave appropriately online. We can only be successful in this, if we work with parents/carers to ensure the message is consistent. It is important that parents/carers know how to stay safe and speak to their children about how they can use technology appropriately.

All parents and carers can access advice and ideas around keeping children safe online by visiting;
