Online Safety

e-Safety is an important part of keeping children safe at Fleecefield Primary School . We have extensive security measures in place in school to help safeguard pupils from potential dangers or unsuitable material.

We can only be successful in keeping children safe online if we work with parents to ensure the e-Safety message is consistent. It is important that parents speak to their children about how they can keep safe and behave appropriately online.

As a parent or carer you play a key role in helping your child to stay safe online. Tips, advice, guides and resources to help keep your child safe online Please click here

It is important to stay safe online. Staying safe includes blocking pop up ads and keeping your personal information to yourself. Make sure an adult is supervising you whilst using the internet. If you see something inappropriate (that is not right) tell an adult you know and trust. Do not keep it to yourself.
