Internet Safety is something which is taught throughout the year, in all classes. The children are taught how to be responsible users of the internet and how to keep themselves safe. They learn about keeping their passwords to themselves and what to do if they encounter a problem whilst they are using the internet.
We encourage parents to promote safe and responsible use of technology at home. If you need support please look at the following websites for advice, guidance and activities you can do with your child to support their learning.

Has someone acted inappropriately towards you online, or to a child or young person you know?
