At Hargrave Park, e-safety is taught alongside Computing lessons and through cross-curricular ICT links. Each year we have an e-safety week and celebrate ‘safer internet day’.
Staying safe on-line is a key message within the curriculum and our wider safeguarding work and communication with our children and families. It is our aim that children move on to secondary school with the information and tools that they need to be able to use ICT safely and creatively.
