In an increasingly technological world, never has it been more important to not only protect our children from online dangers, but to also educate them about online conduct so that the internet remains a positive tool for both learning and entertainment. We take the prevalent issue of e-Safety very seriously at our school, completing one lesson per year group each half term, as well as taking part in Safer internet day in February each year. Please see below for our school e-Safety policy, as well as a link to CEOP in conjunction with the police for how to keep children safe online.
