At school, we are teaching children to be 21st century learners. We encourage our pupils to use modern technology to support their learning. New technology when used appropriately is a brilliant tool but there are some dangers that all users need to be made aware of.
At Hanbury, we teach e-safety every week as part of our computing curriculum. We show children what to do if they find something inappropriate whilst using the internet in school and advise them what to do when they are at home.
