We value computing within our school and encourage our children to experience different ways of accessing mobile technology. From laptops and IPads through to games consoles and e-readers, our children are able to access a wealth of resources and explore different technologies to suit their learning styles. The eSafety of our children is of paramount importance to the school and something that we monitor and revisit regularly.
We know that parents and carers are concerned about protecting children when they are using the Internet, both in school and at home. Below you will find information on how to keep your children safe, tips on how to initiate conversations around the subject of eSafety and specific advise on online gaming. We have also included various links that will direct you to further information from external organisations.
