E - Safety
During Autumn Term the children will also be learning about the dangers of being online. We understand that technology is a huge part of the children's lives, however if they are to be using it in school and at home we need to ensure their safety.
The children will be creating E-safety posters and have a better understanding into safety issues when online. They will be looking at:
How to use technology safely
Online chat room danger/Games online (Social Media)
Using search engines safely
Identify a range of ways to report concerns about content and contact.
