Hello and Welcome to the E-Safety section of the school website. On this page we will feature news and advice about keeping your child, and sometimes yourself, safe whilst online. E-Safety is growing in importance everyday as we become more connected with friends, family and the online global community. The internet has a great deal of wonderful and useful pages to explore. Most of us would be lost without the ability to 'google' facts and information. Your child's homework projects would be more time consuming and some more daunting without the information that we can find online. Unfortunately, with all the good that we can do and find, there are also many potential hazards. The things that we advise the children to do to stay safe online can also be adopted by adults. We are going to work with all of the children to help them to become 'Digital Citizens', build their online resilience and help them to make good choices, both on and offline.
We cannot, of course, do this without parental support. On this page you will find useful websites to help tackle issues which you and your child are confronted with. These websites also contain advice guides to Social Media, games and setting privacy controls on a range of devices. If you have any questions or would like any help or advice from school, please contact Mrs Dyde at firstname.lastname@example.org. There is also a post box for the children to drop any notes or queries into, this is located by the Junior Staffroom.
