Children at our school use the internet on a regular basis as part of their learning. In school, we have regular E-Safety activities to remind children of the importance of keeping themselves safe online.
Throughout the school year we remind the children about E-safety issues in whole school assemblies. During our first week back, Mrs Skinner reminded the children about being safe online and the children have participated in lessons on E-Safety throughout the year.
