At Town Lane Infant School we always remind children each term about the e-safety rules that they need to consider when they log on to the internet or any computer at home or at school.
If any parent has any concerns about e-safety please call the school.
Each year group will explore and discuss safer internet use in different ways, suitable for their age.
Information will be provided to parents at the beginning of the year to introduce you to the school website and how we keep children safe on the internet at school. This information will explain how you can help to keep your child safe on the internet at home
If you have any issues at all please talk to your child's class teacher.

Safer Internet Day
Safer Internet Day is celebrated globally in February each year to promote the safe and positive use of digital technology for children and young people and inspire a national conversation.
The global theme for Safer Internet Day is “Together for a better internet”, with this year’s UK campaign entitled “Free to be me.”
Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre, Safer Internet Day is celebrated in over a hundred countries, coordinated by the joint Insafe/INHOPE network, with the support of the European Commission, and national Safer Internet Centres across Europe.
The day offers the opportunity to highlight positive uses of technology and to explore the role we all play in helping to create a better and safer online community.
