Parents & Carers


It is really important that parents and carers work with us to ensure children stay safe in their use of technology. When we talk about e-Safety, we are not just talking about the internet. We are talking about the use of computers, games consoles (such as X-Box and PlayStation), mobile phones, televisions, tablets (such as the iPad) and many other things.

There are several elements to e-Safety that we teach at West Grove:

  1. How to use the internet safely, and what to do if something goes wrong or we see something we shouldn't
  2. How to keep ourselves safe - keeping our details private and keeping our data secure
  3. How to behave when using technology - being courteous and responsible, and what to do if others treat us in a way which is not kind.
  4. Encouraging a healthy use of technology - not over-using mobiles, consoles or computers.
