E-Safety Resources

The Internet is an increasingly important factor in every day life and children are spending more and more time online. Teaching our pupils to use the internet safely, securely and to get as much out of it as they can is an important part of the curriculum at Newby. To help parents, carers and volunteers reinforce that leaning we have compiled this list of handy resources.
