Welcome to the E-Safety section of our website. Here you can find information on how to stay safe online, including the safe and responsible use of social media.
As a child of a technological age, you have grown up around technology in school and also possibly at home. You have never known a time without a computer, laptop or the Internet - and might even be better than your parents!
Although you might be able to use technolgoy and the Internet easily, you still face the same dangers as anyone else that uses the Internet, just like your parents. You could still see inappropriate websites and images; be the victim of cyber bullying, or receive spam emails so it is really important that we know how to use technology and the Internet safely.
However, don't be scared about using the internet because it is a FANTASTIC resource and you can find out nearly anything that you want to know!
