Esafety evening

Thank you to those of you who attended our annual esafety briefing this evening. I hope you found it useful and it is always an important issue to discuss.

In a world dominated by the internet and having an online presence, where a plethora of mobile devices, all internet ready are scattered around our houses, it is as important as ever to understand the need to protect our children from the pitfalls and dangers of venturing into unknown online territories. The web is a fantastic resource and I am a true advocate of it’s use to promote and support learning and to develop skills in order to prepare for the world of work, where a technological awareness is vital.

Tonight’s meeting addressed those benefits and dangers and you can find the presentation on the school website¬†HERE. You will also notice a wealth of online learning material to support your child, and documents to support you in helping your child to stay safe online. Paper copies can also be found outside the office and copies of Digital Parenting magazine are also available; please ask as I have plenty!

Please keep an eye on the calendar for further parent meetings as I do try to offer what people are asking for so that we can develop a strong and purposeful Home-School Learning Partnership.
