At Fordingbridge Infant School we take e-safety very seriously. Children use the Internet on a regular basis as part of their learning. In school we have regular e-safety activities to remind children of the importance of keeping safe online. We also use a filtering system to prevent access to inappropriate sites.
We recently provided an e-safety session for parents which explores what children are doing online, as well as the risk which can be found and ways to protect our children online.
Below you will find a list of resources to support parents in keeping children safe online.
