Our children are growing up in a digital world in which technology is everywhere and an integral part of their lives.  Whilst such technology provides our children with opportunities to learn and grow and will provide essential skills for their future, it can also expose them to certain risks. For this reason, Internet safety is always a priority in our school.    

At the beginning of each year, all children take part in e-safety lessons which teach them how to use online technology in a safe and responsible manner.  Lessons will also teach  children what to do if they feel unsafe when online and give them the confidence to speak out. Watch this space for a new internet ‘acceptable user’ agreement which will soon be developed by our school council!

We are also committed to working closely with parents and carers when it comes to e-safety.  Useful information will be provided every other week on the newsletter and this website page to help us all keep up with the different sites that our children might have access to and how to ensure they are being used safely.  If you are ever worried or concerned about your child’s safety online, please do not hesitate to talk to us; we can offer advice and point you in the direction of some brilliant online safety websites with lots of useful information.
