e-Safety

 

The internet has become an essential part of children’s every day world whether they are accessing a wealth of educational resources, using it to talk and share materials with their friends or for a multitude of other uses that are legitimate and beneficial in so many ways. However it does also open up the opportunity for danger and it is therefore vitally important to ensure that children are kept safe whilst using it.

 

Throughout ICT lessons children are taught about the dangers of the internet and how to keep themselves safe. It is important that the same message is also given from home.

 

There is lots of information available about how to keep your child safe whilst using the internet. The links below are sites that will provide you with up-to-date information:
