E-Safety is really important and we need to work together to ensure that all children are educated to remain safe while using the Internet and other things in the digital world.
In school, we teach the children about e-safety and remind them of the key messages. We use the Internet on a regular basis as part of our learning. There is a filtering system in school to prevent children from accessing inappropriate websites, but, as these systems are not 100% perfect we do teach the children what to do if they find something they do not like.
