Being e-safe! — The Learning Schools Trust working in partnership with Childnet

Childnet´s mission is to work with others to help make the internet a great and safe place for children. With technology being important in the way our students learn and play, we believe they are the perfect organisation to work with to promote the benefits of technology in learning, whilst keeping our students safe. By clicking here, you will be directed to Childnet´s webpage where you will find lots of information about how to keep children safe online. Our student and teacher IT ambassadors are being trained by Childnet on how to be e-safe — they will then take these ideas back to their respective Academies and train others.
