E-Safety for Parents
Children today live in an ever changing digital world. Although internet safety is now part of the primary curriculum, we also want to help parents improve their own understanding and keep them informed and up-to-date to ensure they are able to help keep their children safe online. please let us know if there is any other information you've found useful that we can post here to help other parents and families.
Click here to go to e-safety activities. Look for the ones aimed at the age group of your children. They have from 4 to 14+ years, and are updated fortnightly.
In March 2019, the schools' computing curriculum team led a workshop on keeping your child safe online.
We also had a presentation from Dr Sarah Starkey about the possible dangers of WiFi and mobile phone signals.
Both presentations are here:
