The internet is an important part of our world and it is used daily for a variety of purposes. Technology is changing rapidly and it is important that we ensure our children access these safely, at school and at home.
Children should always be supervised accessing the internet, remembering that the internet can be accessed from many mobile devices too, such as mobile phones and tablets. At the Rosary School, in our e-Safety lessons, we advise the children not to use internet technology alone away from adults. We also help the children to understand who they can talk to if they feel unsafe online.
This page provides a range of resources for parents and carers to help them stay informed on the latest issues surrounding e-safety.
