Online Safety Week 2019
Online Safety Week 2019
Children at Etwall Primary School use the internet on a regular basis as part of their learning. This week, we will be holding our annual Online Safety Week to remind children of the importance of keeping themselves safe online.
At home, sometimes children can be given unsupervised access to the internet. This, potentially, allows them to access all kinds of society (both good and bad) and bring them virtually into their homes.
Throughout the week, we will be posting photographs of children's work, videos, safety tips and advice and links to other websites to help you successfully navigate through the ever changing face of the internet.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact the school. We would be only too pleased to give you any help or advice about keeping you and your children safe whilst online.
