INTERNET SAFETY

In these difficult times, we are asking our pupils, parents and carers to access the internet for everything: Lessons, important contact information, ideas to keep fit and well etc.

So can we also ask you to take the time to remind yourselves and your children about internet safety. Now more than ever it is important to understand the dangers of using the internet, whether it is buying something online, using internet banking or showing the children fun videos to keep them entertained.

 

The website link below have created simple 15 minute activity packs to encourage online safety.
