At Ellenbrook School we are committed to keeping your children safe and that includes being safe when using a computer. Internet safety is taught every year in Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, and children are reminded of the rules every time they access the internet in school.

For parents: The Internet opens up the world to children and young people. It allows for many wonderful educational and learning opportunities. In addition to useful education tools on the Internet, a great deal of content also exists that is not appropriate for children. We hope that the following information will support you in keeping your children safe in this digital world.
Game Consoles and Video Games
Video gaming can be great fun, with fantastic educational and social benefits, but it is essential that children are protected whilst they play!
