Internet Safety

Using the Internet safely

e-Safety is an important part of keeping children safe at The Minster Junior School . We have extensive security measures in place in school, which are monitored both internally and externally, to help safeguard pupils from potential dangers or unsuitable material.

e-Safety is taught to all pupils explaining and demonstrating how to stay safe and behave appropriately online.

We can only be successful in keeping children safe online if we work with parents to ensure the e-Safety message is consistent. It is important that parents speak to their children about how they can keep safe and behave appropriately online.

Following our successful e-Safety workshop on 16th June 2016, we have included some links and information files for Parents and Carers to help them with navigating along the 'information superhighway'. Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you have any concerns regarding your child's safe use of the internet.
