Many children use technology on a daily basis and are familiar with using a range of devices including PC's, laptops, tablets, smart phones and online games. We regularly discuss being safe on the internet at school and take part in Safer Internet Day each year.
We have created a leaflet regarding E-Safety which is available in the school reception area. A copy of this is below:
Further to this, we have also put together a short Youtube video about E-safety. This can be accessed with the following link:
To help further, we have added some more links to support parents/carers in helping children use the internet safely at home. We have also included links to Kent County Council/Trading Standards regarding information for keeping your child safe online and our E-Safety Policy.
www.thinkuknow.co.uk is full of child friendly online safety advice.
www.net-aware.org.uk is a fantastic website that lets you search games, apps and content of interest to children to gain a clearer understanding of their advised age restrictions.

This poster summarises what the children were taught on our last Safer Internet Day.
Below are a selection of the posters the children have made regarding E-Safety.
As part of Safer Internet Day the year two children watched the 'Take a minute' video and then had a class discussion about how to keep safe online. The teachers then wrote down the children's ideas on the puzzle pieces. They then fitted them together as a class and had another discussion about what it means to stay safe. They all had brilliant ideas and really understood how to stay safe online!
