Online Behaviour and Safety

Children at Easterside Academy use the Internet on a regular basis as part of their learning. In school, children take part in regular 'online behaviour / safety' activities 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.

Here are some Online Safety posters. Why not put one up next to the computer at home and talk about it with your children?
