Our pupils often use the internet as part of their learning, and have regular lessons on e-safety to help them know how to keep safe online. Pupils in school are always supervised when using the internet.

We realise that this close supervision of internet use is much harder to do at home, so here are some useful sites and guides to help!

These sites have some great activities, advice and games for children:
