The school believes in the value of technologies as tools for learning and acknowledges that teaching computing is an essential part of preparing the children to live and work in a technological world. It also recognises it's responsibility to teach the children and support parents/carers in understanding the potential dangers of internet use and in promoting online safety.

E-Safety when remote learning
Whilst you child is learning from home, they are likely to need to use online resources more than they would when in school.
Please ensure that your child only goes online whilst you are with them and that any devices that they are using have parental controls enabled to protect them from viewing any content that may not be age appropriate.
We talk to your child about e-safety whenever they use laptops and tablets at school, and we always remind them not to share any personal information online and/or to tell an adult if they see anything that makes them feel worried or anxious.
The children will recognise the characters above and should be able to tell you about learning they have done in class around e-safety in PSHE and Computing lessons.
The websites below contain resources which can be used to talk to your children about staying safe online. The organisations also offer advice on steps that you can take to ensure that your child accesses the internet safely.
