Internet Safety Awareness

In Waringstown Primary School we take the safety of our children very seriously, that also includes their safety on the Internet.

Children are becoming increasingly computer literate so it is essential that parents/carers are fully aware of the pros and cons of their child using the Internet. As we continue our new School year and Term, would you please ensure you talk to your child about the SMART rules for the use of the Internet and general E-Safety within school and home.

Visit the Our Policy Link to view the E-Safety Policy.

Below you will find links to websites which offer advice to help ensure that children stay safe while online and will also help to reinforce the SMART rules:
