As a parent/carer, the world of online safety can be confusing and overwhelming. There is so much information out there and often the children are so much further ahead in their understanding. E-Safety is just as important as teaching your child about stranger danger or what to do in a fire. As a school we promote e-safety in all aspects of ICT usage. Below are some useful links for national organisations which offer practical advice and guidance on how to keep your child safe on-line.
