This is the digital age! Young people and children are using technology at home and at school. They use computers, sometimes mobile phones, video games consoles etc., as part of their everyday lives. They often seem ‘expert’ compared to parents!
But, children and young people do not have the ‘life experience’ of adults and need your support. You can provide this by talking to your child about what they are doing with technology and how to keep safe online.
Our E-safety Policy can help you to understand some of the expectations for our children and staff here at Hatherley Infant School.
We have Acceptable Users agreements which children need to adhere to when using computers in school. This should also help children to remember how to stay safe online when they are at home.
