E-Safety Information for Parents and Carers

For 2016 the Safer Internet theme is ‘Play your part for a better internet’.

This offers the opportunity to focus on both the creative and positive things that children and young people are doing online, as well as the role that we all play in helping to create a better internet. Activities took place in school around Safer Internet Day (9th February) and there was also an information evening at the school for Parents.

The information provided at the meeting is available below.
