Welcome to the E-Safety section of our website. Here you can find information on how to stay safe online, including the safe and responsible use of social media.
As a parent in a technological age, our children have grown up around technology in school and also possibly at home. We have rarely known a time without a computer, laptop or the Internet.
Although our children might be able to use technology and the Internet easily, they all still face the same dangers as anyone else that uses the Internet. They could still see inappropriate websites and images; be the victim of cyber bullying, or receive spam emails so it is really important that we know how to use technology and the Internet safely.
However, don't be scared about using the internet because it is a FANTASTIC resource and you can find out nearly anything that you want to know! in your browser.
Cyberbullying?Cyberbullying is a form of bullying which takes place online or through a mobile phone. With the increased use and availability of the Internet and technology, it is likely that most young people will experience it at some time (BullyingUK)
