E-safety is an important part of keeping our children safe. E-safety is taught to all pupils explaining and demonstrating how to stay safe and behave appropriately online. We can only be successful in keeping children safe if we work with parents to ensure the e-safety message is consistent. It is important that parents know how to stay safe and speak to their children about how they can stay safe on line. Whilst no search engine is ever 100% safe there are some links below to some of the safer search engines. There are also links to sites which provide advice on social media to parents.
