Being Safe online at Holmer Lake Primary School
At Holmer Lake we understand the importance of e-safety and keeping our children safe. Our children are taught how to stay safe and behave appropriately online through discreet e-safety lessons but also across the wider curriculum.
We do not believe that banning internet and technology is a solution, educating children about the risks as well as the benefits is key. In order to successfully keep our children safe online we want to support parents to ensure that the e-safety message is consistent and that it allows children to develop safer online behaviours both in and out of school.
The information provided on this page is to support parents in providing more information about ways to educate children in the safe and successful use of the internet at home.
