Welcome to our E-Safety page

The internet is used by all ages and has become an integral part of children’s lives, which is why we take great care to ensure we pass on the important message of E-Safety at school and at home when using the internet.

The internet is used to search for information, obtain pictures, talk to people from anywhere in the world and play games online.  We can also share details and pictures with our families and friends and upload them instantly from any device (Desktop PC, Laptop, Tablet or Mobile Phone).

Therefore, it is important to remember just a few simple rules by following the ‘SMART’ guide to make sure we keep our children safe online.

Be SMART online

SAFE – keep safe by not giving out your personal information when you are posting online.  Personal information includes your home address, email address, full name, phone number or password.

MEETING – Remember online friends are still strangers even if you have been speaking to them for a long time.  Therefore, never agree to meet someone you have only met online.

ACCEPTING – When accepting emails, messages or opening files, pictures and texts from an unknown source or people you do not know or trust can be dangerous.  They may contain viruses or nasty messages so be smart and do not open them.

RELIABLE – Remember someone might lie about who they are the information on the internet may not be true. Always check with someone if you are unsure.

TELL – Always tell someone if you see something online that makes you feel uncomfortable or worried.

We hope you find it both useful and informative.
