E-Safety Information for Parents/Carers
"Encouraging children to keep their personal information private is one of the biggest challenges we face."

It can be hard for parents to keep up with new technologies, and just thinking about keeping kids safe online can seem daunting. It's important to remember that the internet is a fun and valuable place for children to play and learn, and the vast majority of the time using the internet is a fantastic experience for millions of children. However, as with many things in life, there can be hidden dangers. On the internet people can be instantly connected and you cannot always be sure you are talking to the person you think you are. It's also worth remembering, once something is posted on the internet it's almost impossible to remove and so personal or embarrassing material can be seen by anyone, anywhere. We shouldn't be overwhelmed by the negatives, remember the internet is a great resource for children. It's important that we give them space to explore the internet, so they can learn to keep themselves safe.

We will keep you updated with e-safety information and any e-safety events. Please look at the links below for more information about keeping children safe online.
