Please see the document linked at the bottom of this page for more information on our comprehensive E-Safety curriculum, so you can support what your son/daughter is learning about each term.
If you have any questions regarding our E-Safety curriculum, please contact Mrs Gemma Silk (Subject leader for Religious Studies, PSHE and Mentoring).
