Children at St George’s Church of England Academy use the internet on a regular basis as part of their learning. In school, we have regular ‘e-safety’ activities to remind children of the importance of keeping themselves safe online.
We expect the children to actively learn responsible use of the internet through our ongoing work on being safe and to ensure that the children have the opportunity to gain an age appropriate understanding of the potential risk as well as the advantages of using modern technology as they progress through the school.
You can help support your child at home by being aware of potential risk, and regularly talking to your child about how they use the internet at home. If you require more information you may find these links helpful or by all means talk to your child’s teacher.
