Reception E Safety

Knowing about E Safety is so important for Reception children that we've added this section about what's good and bad about the internet and ways you can get yourself out of bad situations. The website we've chosen even has fun games you can play while learning E Safety. Most importantly, there’s also a place which anyone can use to report if they feel uncomfortable or worried about someone they are chatting to online.
