At Cheetwood, E-Safety is at the centre of our use of ICT. We believe that it is of paramount importance for children to learn how to inhabit the digital world safely and with enjoyment. Through our learning about E-Safety we look at lots of different aspects of using digital technology including: cyberbullying; keeping information private; stranger danger; social media; and password safety.

The protection of children against cyberbullying is embedded in our Anti-Bullying policy – which can be found on our policy page. Please follow the link below to view a presentation for parents about cyberbullying and steps you can take to prevent against this.

Social Media

The use of social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat and Instagram is very popular amongst young people. Most of these sites have an age limit of 13. We recommend that parents/carers do not allow their primary school age children to use social media unless age appropriate.

Online Gaming

The online game – Fornite is extremely popular with young people, for information on how to keep your child safe whilst they play please click the link:
