Welcome to our E-Safety section of our website, where we will share with you some important information, resources and help to support you with E safety.
The internet is essential in 21st century life for education, business, and social interaction. As children move up through the school, their access to various types of technology increases as does their exploration and curiosity of this media. The positives of the digital world generally outweigh the negatives, but we all need to be aware of various online risks so that we can ensure the safety of our children.
E-Safety is an important part of our computing curriculum for all children. We have separate E-Safety Codes for EYFS/KS1 and KS2 and these are regularly reviewed with the children.
