What is E-Safety? 


E-Safety means electronic safety.

 E-Safety is important because it helps to keep us safe so they can enjoy, explore and have fun when using technology!

Some online dangers include:

  • Cyberbullying – Some people can be mean to us and can do and say unkind things to us.
  • Strangers - Some people online can lie and pretend to be our friends. 
  • They might ask for personal information about ourselves
  • Online Material - Some things online are not suitable for us to see.

If people online are mean or worry you?

  • Tell an adult you trust straight away.
  •  Try to stay calm.
  • Report anything that worries you.
  • Try to ignore the person.
  • Block and delete the person.
  • Keep all messages for evidence

Internet Safety Day

One night, Chick hops into the farmer’s house and has a browse on his computer - CLICK - soon she’s shopping online for the whole farm! But when she arranges to meet up with a friend she’s made online, she discovers all is not as it seems...

The internet is like a magician’s hat. It's full of exciting things to explore and children love it. But whilst they seem to know what they’re doing, sometimes it’s hard for parents to keep track.

The NSPCC & O2 have got lots of tips and advice. They also are running workshops to help you have the right conversations with your children. The NSPCC even have a free helpline to give you personal advice whenever you need it. They have free parent posters and guides on Common Apps children are using for your information available on their website, which we have added below.
