Here at Bowling Green, the children use the internet on a regular basis as an integral part of their learning. In school, we have regular e-safety activities and assemblies to remind children of the importance of keeping themselves safe online. To help us remember the main principles of staying safe online, we use the ‘SMART’ rules:

The ‘Lets’ Talk About Life Online’ from ChildsNet and UK Safer Internet Centre is a fantastic starter page for any parents/carers who want to know more about keeping their child safe in a digital world, including ‘key messages’ to share and conversation starters.
