Online Safety

The internet is an amazing resource which enables people to bring together and share a vast amount of information. Children have been able to communicate and share with different people in many different ways through a range of different devices. However, technology is developing rapidly year by year and children's use of technology can be a challenge. This has resulted that E-safety has become an essential part of education nowadays. Although children might feel safe online, we need to educate our children how important it is to keep safe online.
