Keeping children and young people safe online is one of the biggest challenges facing our ever-changing, fast-paced digital society today and it is all of our responsibility to ensure that children are educated and equipped to make the best, informed choices when they are online.
As part of Daresbury’s computing curriculum, children engage in expressly taught E-Safety lessons. In accordance with our E-Safety Policy, where both teachers and students are given guidance on how to use the Internet safely. Every year group participates in lessons on e-safety and children understand how to stay safe when using technology.
However, your help and support is also needed to prevent children accessing inappropriate material at home by ensuring that parental controls and filters are in place on any device your child has access to.
We also encourage parents to regularly engage in conversation about E-safety with their children.
Please find child-friendly safety advice to share with your child below.
