Our children are growing up in a digital age. There are many exciting and wonderful experiences and tools that can be found online. However, there are risks, just as there are in the real world. Keeping up with the latest technology and ensuring it is used safely is a challenge for schools and parents alike.
Here at Christ Church, we regard safety on the internet as incredibly important and aim to educate children in the safe use of the internet. All children cover e-safety as part of the curriculum and we regularly discuss dangers of the internet as we prepare our children for the reality and demands of the real world.
When using the internet, children must make sure that they are using it in a responsible way:
- Only talk to people you know
- Communicate in the same way you would in person
- Remember to follow guidelines you are given by adults
- Check the recommended age of any sites you are using and speak to an adult
