Please note: We have postponed the Sports Day and Summer Fayre to Friday 14th July. Hopefully this will give everyone the chance to rearrange so they can join us at these events.

We all want children to be safe when using the Internet or mobile devices.

In school we teach age appropriate units of work which address a wide range of e-Safety issues. Many of the materials we use are produced by CEOP (The Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre).

CEOP produce a range of materials under the "Think you know" banner which are aimed at 5-7 year olds, 8-10 year olds, 11-16 year olds, parents/carers and teachers/trainers.
