E-Safety is ever becoming a more important focus as our global community advances in this technological world. On this page you will find out a bit of what we do in school to educate our children about staying safe and protecting themselves online. You will also find some useful link that you may find useful for yourself or others members of your family.
What do we do in school?
Safer Internet Day
Each year we celebrate Safer Internet day and each class will be asked to complete activities relevant to each year focus.
A large focus in our newly created computing curriculum is on E-Safety. Every year the children will spend at least half a term focusing on Internet Safety and this will be revisited throughout the year. We teach the children to embrace and make the most of the internet, but making smart decisions whilst doing so. Our curriculum empowers children to use the web safely and wisely, so they can be confident explorers of the online world.
