As a parent you’ll know how important the internet is to children – they use it to learn, play, socialise and express themselves. It’s a highly creative place of amazing opportunities. However the technology children use every day can be daunting and you might worry or not know about the risks your child can face online – such as bullying, contact from strangers or the possibility of them seeing illegal or inappropriate content.
Online Safety is an important part of keeping children safe at Abbey Farm Educate Together Primary. We have extensive security measures in place, which are monitored both internally and externally, to help safeguard pupils from potential dangers or unsuitable material.
From the outset, Online Safety is taught to all pupils explaining and demonstrating how to stay safe and behave appropriately online.
