At St Mary’s we take e-Safety seriously! All children are taught about being connected in this digital world and how to use it in a safe and responsible manner. At the start of each year children talk about the importance of e-Safety and are asked to sign our ‘Acceptable user agreement’ which highlights the most important areas. We do ask our parents to talk their child through the key points and to sign a simple acknowledgement form that they have done this.
Do you realise that to legally use ‘Facebook’, ‘Instagram’, ‘WhatsApp’, ‘SnapChat’ and most other social media sites or tools children must be a minimum of 13 years of age!

…are two outstanding sites that support e-safety.
