“Bringing Learning to Life”

Online Safety

Being online is an integral part of children and young peoples lives.  Social media, online games, websites and apps can be accessed through mobile phones, computers, laptops and tablets - all of which form a part of children and young people's online world.


The internet and online technology provides new opportunities for young people's learning and growth, but it can also expose them to new types of risks.


E-Safety forms a fundamental part of schools' safeguarding and child protection measures and Government guidance for schools across the UK highlights the importance of safeguarding children online.


At Therfield First School, E-Safety is an integral part of our whole school curriculum.  We do not just teach children about how to stay safe online, but we foster an environment whereby they are encouraged to ask any questions and participate in an ongoing conversation about the benefits and dangers of the online world. 


Our most recent county-led E-Safety training for staff and parents took place on Thursday 20th January 2022.  A copy of the presentation used at the parent session can be found below.
