Keeping our children safe online has become just as important as teaching them how to cross a busy road. The internet brings fantastic opportunities for learning, but at the same time children need to learn how to keep themselves safe. This forms an important part of the curriculum but it is important that we work together in partnership. Our E-safety policy can be viewed using the attached link.
