E-Safety - Digital Safeguarding

The Internet is now an integral part of our lives and an excellent source of information, entertainment and communication opportunities for us all. However, it is essential that we teach our children how to make the best use of this resource whilst knowing about the risks. Children need to be taught how to keep themselves safe, as well as understanding their responsibility to others, whilst using the internet. It is essential that as teachers, parents and carers we maintain an involvement in young children's internet use to guide, advise and when necessary set boundaries.

We hope that the following links will be of use to parents in raising awareness of the internet, its risks as well as helping to keep our children safe online. Please note that these sites are suggestions not recommendations.

Our e-safety policy is available in the Reports and Policies Section of this site.
