E-Safety

Children increasingly use the internet and technology in their daily lives to learn, research, play and communicate. The online world is a useful place for young people to explore, with great opportunities for learning and creativity, but just like the real world there are risks and dangers that children should be aware of and which we should all act to protect them from. As a school we encourage the use of technology as an important part of our students’ development but always want them to spend their time online safely.

Safer Internet Day 2017 was celebrated globally on Tuesday 7th February. Children at Deansfield  took part in discussions and activities designed to support them to use the internet safely.

In our Computing lessons at school we support children to be safe online at home as well as at school. The websites below have information for parents with activities  for children to reinforce E-safety learning.

We ran a series of E-safety workshops for parents in Autumn 2016.
