E-Safety

E-Safety

Following on from the success of the presentation to parents on 18th May regarding the safety of our children on the internet, we are putting together as much information as we can on these pages. Please see below several useful leaflets giving an outline of what we all can do to ensure the safety of our children online.


As part of the school's commitment to e-safety - all staff have been trained in how to safely use the web and regular lessons will be held for all children to encourage them to safely use the internet.


Uncertain about how your child can safely enjoy the benefits of the web? Think U Know has a parent questionnaire, information on how to use the web safely, videos aimed at teaching children about the dangers of giving our personal information online and much more.

K9 Web Protection

As mentioned at our parents' presentation (18th May) you can download a free version of the K9 Web Protection software.
