E-Safety

ssl

The internet is part of everyday life for education, business and social interaction and schools have a duty to provide students with quality internet access as part of their learning experience. Pupils also use the internet outside school and need to learn how to evaluate internet information and to take care of their own safety and security.

To help you and your children further, we aim to provide as much information available to help you keep you and your child safe. Please feel free to browse through these links and keep yourself e-safety aware.

Some useful information to keep your children safe and to help you support your children, can be found in some of these documents too:
