The internet has changed all of our lives, particularly our children’s. For parents and carers this opens up a whole new world of things to be aware of and this is changing continually.
We are committed to educating your children about the risks of going online and what your children can do to protect themselves. As part of this commitment, we committed to work towards an e-safety accreditation through the '360 degree E-Safety' scheme over three years. We are now in our third year and we are hoping to pass the coveted accreditation in 2016.
