Welcome to our eSafety page where we will give you and your children tips on staying safe online!

First of all remember the SMART rules!

Safe – Never give out your personal information over the internet, such as your name, address, school and email address.

Meeting – Never meet up with anyone you meet up with online.

Accepting – Don’t open emails or attachments from anyone you don’t know as they may contain a virus.

Reliable – Always check two or more websites to ensure the information you are reading is correct.

Tell – Always tell an adult if you are unsure about anything on the internet!

Here are some websites that your child may enjoy looking at:
