E-Safety & Acceptable Use Policy_April 17

As parents, relatives, teachers and other adults responsible to keep children safe, we want our children and those we look after to be healthy and happy and to develop well both physically and mentally. Above all, we want children to be safe. With technology changing so fast and children’s amazing ability to understand and use it (often better than adults) it is important to keep up to date with popular internet sites and apps that they may access.

Below is a set of guides to help adults understand the most popular current sites and apps that some children like to use. It is important to have an informed understanding of these sites and apps as they are unsuitable for Primary aged children to use unsupervised and some have age restrictions.
