E-Safety Information for Parents
We take internet safety very seriously and would like to make you aware of the range of on line resources for pupils, parents and teachers. All of them provide useful advice, resources and games to help parents and pupils remain safe on the internet.
Please remember it is very important that if you ever have any issues which relate to the internet safety of any of our pupils please do not hesitate to contact your class teacher. All of our pupils are also told to report any inappropriate Internet issues to their class teacher; Mrs Johnston (Acting Headteacher) or Mr Legge (Computing Subject Lead).
