What is Online Safety?
Children have more access than ever before, at school and at home, to many types of internet communication. It might be researching a topic for homework, using Moshi Monsters on the computer, using an app on an I-pad or playing computer games with friends through a X-Box or Wii. Online safety involves making sure that our children know the advantages and disadvantages of using this technology and that they become safe, respectful and responsible users of it. We are encouraging our pupils to become Super Digital Citizens!
