E-Safety Week 2018
5th – 9th February
The internet is fantastic for playing games, watching videos or finding things out. However, it can also be a dangerous place if you don’t keep yourself safe and secure online.
E-Safety teaches children what they can do to keep themselves safe and what to do if things ever go wrong. There will be assemblies and lessons within the classes this week to make the children think about keeping themselves safe online.
There are also E-Safety workshops for parents. These are designed to help you understand what are the current dangers your child faces when they are online, what we teach them about keeping themselves safe and what you can do to help keep them safe.
For all parents of children in years Reception, 1, 2, 3, & 4 (Fir, Yew, Birch, Lime, Apple, Koa, Redwood, Silkwood, Nutmeg, Tamarind and Walnut), There will be a workshop in the morning (9:00 Lower Hall), repeated in the afternoon (3:30 Quartz Room) on Tuesday 6th February.
