Online Safety

Children have access to the online world through a variety of devices: a mobile phone, a computer, a tablet and gaming devices such as an XBOX or Play Station. As technology is being used more frequently by children both at home and at school, we recognise the importance of educating children from a young age about the dangers of the internet to help them remain safe whilst they also benefit from the internets many uses. Through our curriculum, especially through RSHE and computing, we teach children about the internet and how to stay safe online. 



We take E-Safety very seriously.  We constantly deliver E-Safety based assemblies and lessons to our children to ensure that the rules are always at the forefront of their minds. 

The E-Safety Rules that we promote are known as the SMART Rules.  Please help us to ensure that your child knows the following rules:

S is for safe- Never give your personal information to people that you do not know.

M is for meet- Never arrange to meet with strangers.

A is for Accepting- Never accept emails or messages from people that you do not know as they might contain a virus.

R is for reliable- Not everything that you read on the internet is true.

T is for tell- If anything upsets you on the internet always tell a trusted adult.
