E-safety is the safe use of information systems and electronic communications, including the internet, mobile phones and games consoles. It is important that children and young people understand the benefits, risks and responsibilities of using information technology.
It is crucial that we work together to keep everyone safe online. At school we use the internet a lot for research, coding and much more. The internet is an exciting place however it is important that children are aware of ways in which they can protect themselves online.
A family agreement is great way to get children and parents on board with how we use the internet safely. This can just be a conversation with your child where you agree some rules around using the internet at home, at school or at a friend’s house.
