E-Safety for Parents

E-Safety

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.

Safer Internet Day
Safer Internet Day is organised every year in February. It helps to promote a safer and more responsible use of online technology. We promote this event through assemblies, activities, discussions and quizzes during this week.
