For current information and advice, we recommend the following website:
At Newport Infant School we embed eSafety into many areas of the curriculum. We encourage you to support us in this by helping your child to stay safe on the Internet at home also. Please use these links to view free educational resources to reinforce the safety message to younger children.
The e-safety policy can be found on the School Policies page of the website.
As a parent, it can be really difficult keeping up to date with all of the latest games and apps the children want to use! Net Aware provides really useful information and gives age ratings for any new games and apps. We highly recommend using this before children are allowed access to new games/apps.
