Online Safety at Littlemoor
We believe that the effective use of the internet is worthwhile and is an essential skill for children as they grow up in the modern world but it’s important to keep yourself and your family safe. Our school Internet provider operates a filtering system that restricts access to inappropriate materials.
Trends in technology and social media can be rapid and we aim to keep you well-informed so that you are aware of these. If you wish to ask any questions or discuss any concerns you have, please do not hesitate to discuss these on the phone when your child’s teacher next contacts you.
