E-Safety & Gaming

E-safety is an important part of keeping children safe both at school & at home.  Keeping children safe online will only be successful if we all work together to ensure the e-Safety message is consistent. It is important to speak to children about how they can keep safe and behave appropriately online.  They also need to know what they should do if they have a problem – good internet security & education around safe use is the best defence we can give them.
