e-Safety is an area of the computing curriculum that we take especially seriously at St. Luke’s. We are very aware of the increasing and valid concerns that parents and carers have and their need for useful and relevant information. Being aware of what’s out there and the level of access that your children have is an important first step in keeping them safe. Children at St. Luke’s are taught and think about internet safety from Reception onward but it is vitally important that you, as parents/carers, can support this learning at home. We hope that this page of links to digital resources we use in the classroom can be of help and may prove useful in understanding the issues and ways forward.
