As the internet becomes an increasingly powerful tool in our lives, it is important that we remain up to date with the latest developments and the implications these may have for our children.
At Archdeacon, and important part of our PSHE and Computing curriculum is Digital Citizenship and Online Safety. We believe that ensuring parents and children are well informed is the most effective way to keep children safe online.
Peter Cowley (E-safety advisor for Kingston and Richmond) visits our school annually to run sessions for Year 5 and 6 children, staff and parents. Please follow this link to find the resources from his most recent visit. http://goo.gl/LcE761
