Here at Kingsley Community Primary and Nursery School we are enthusiastic about promoting and teaching E-Safety skills to our children and their parents or carers.
As we are all aware, technology is becoming much more a part of everyday life and we feel it is our aim and responsibility to educate our children, parents or carers to use the internet in a responsible way, but more importantly to keep them safe while they are online.
The internet can be a fantastic place for children and young people where they can talk to friends, be creative and have fun. However, just like in the real world sometimes things can go wrong.
If you or your child are worried or upset about something which has happened on the internet there is help out there.
Here are some sites that may provide any additional information or answer any questions you have about using the internet safely:
