'Life is a journey. When we stop, things don't go right.' Pope Francis
In school, we have staged staff training and regularly teach the children about the importance of keeping themselves safe online. Children with access to the internet at home should understand that as well as providing a great resource for all of us, the internet can be a very dangerous place, particularly for young, impressionable children.
Our E-safety Policy can be found here and on the Policies page under the School section.
As parents, your influence in helping your children to understand the dangers, as well as the opportunities the internet can bring, is huge. It is vital that, as parents, you feel confident in ensuring your children's safe use of the internet and social networking sites. For more information, take a look at the UK Safer Internet Centre website: www.saferinternet.org.uk/
