E-Safety

Keeping children safe on-line

Children now grow up in a world where computer technology and life on the internet is the norm. Many children, even from a young age, will already be familiar with smartphones or tablets, and they often have their own computers, tablets and games consoles.

HectorThey are part of our everyday life, which is why we need to keep our children safe online and electronic media can be involved in their victimisation and abuse. At school we have Hector (our on-line Dolphin) on all our computers and the children are aware of how to use him should they need to. We want to provide you with more information and support to help you have conversations with your children about staying safe online. There are lots of resources out there to help you.
