E-Safety for Pupils and Parents

New technologies provide amazing opportunities for learning and interaction. They also present new dangers for ourselves and for our children. In addition to the work we do in school to support children's awareness of how to stay safe online, we have compiled a number of resources below to help inform parents and enable us to work together to help support our own and our children's use of the internet safely.
