How we are keeping your children safe online
We will be continuously reminding your children about E-Safety at school through our PSHE curriculum, the IT curriculum and also in assemblies.
So far this year, Saplings children have watched the adventures of Smartie the Penguin and we have discussed the four top tips to staying safe online. Feel free to watch and read the online storybook with your children and talk about it at home. There are also lots of fun activities on this site. This is deemed suitable for 3 -7 year olds.
