E-Safety

With the increase in the wat in which young people communicate, and not only through the internet it is important that we educate our children in how to stay staff when using electronic media devices e.g mobile phones, tablets.  We need to ensure that children and young people are protected from harm and supported to achieve the maximum benefit from new and developing technologies without risk to themselves or others.

E-safety is taught as part of the computing curriculum and within PSHE.  It is promoted throughout the school and tips shared with parents through newsletters. 

Detailed below is the e-safety policy and some useful links to sites to help you to keep your child/ren safe on devices and the internet.
