We take e-safety extremely seriously at Lightwoods Primary School and aim to deliver a high standard of understanding to equip both children and parents with the knowledge and integrity needed in order to stay safe online.
E-Safety is a key part of our curriculum. We routinely educate children as part of each computing lesson as well as assemblies, house days and safer internet day. We also aim to inform parents on any developments in regards to; websites, consoles, games, and apps which may cause an issue.
You can view our 'E-Safety policy' under the 'Child Protection & Safeguarding' policy.
