ICT / eSafety

eSafety is an increasingly complex and important aspect of your child’s education and life in general in the 21st century. We do our utmost to ensure your child is safe when using technology within school. We have a high level of filtering to ensure our children are not exposed to unsuitable material etc. whilst at school. However, this will not always be the case when they have access to a wide range of devices outside of school.Please visit the websites below to find out how you can support your child at home and keep them safe in the online world.

We have also included age appropriate documents (0-5 years, 6-10 years and 11-13 years) that provide online safety tips and the eSafety newsletter for this term. -
