At Paget Primary School, we take online safety extremely seriously. Within our Computing curriculum, we cover online safety. We also discuss it in many other lessons, such as in PSHE.
It is vital that children are reminded of how to be safe when they are at home.
The following links are aimed to help you, at home, to teach your child to be safe. The links may give you some extra tips and advice.
