E Safety

The Internet has become an everyday part of our lives. We use it daily as a tool to improve teaching and learning, to access information from around the world, talk to friends and help with our work. It is an immense environment offering a wealth of resources that benefit us all. However, it is essential that we all learn how to behave responsibly online both at home and at school.

We teach children how to use the internet safely including what to do if they are scared by something they see or read.
