Keeping your children safe online is of the up-most importance. In school we teach the children to stay safe online by: only using safe search engines, only accessing material which is age appropriate and monitored by a responsible adult. We teach the children to shut and tell: if they see or access anything upsetting, inappropriate or if someone is trying to find out their contact information, they should shut the laptop, tablet, phone or any other device and tell an adult immediately.
