The Erme Primary School

Online Safety

Within the Moorsway Federation, we take the eSafety of our young people very seriously and aim to deliver a high quality curriculum which will equip them with the skills and the integrity needed to stay safe online in the modern world. Online Safety is part of the Computing subject curriculum at KS1 and KS2. It exists in the 'Digital Literacy' strand.

Below are a number of resources, links and documents that will help you as a parent not only to understand in more detail what is taught in school, but also how you can support your child at home, whatever their age.
If you would like further information on our E-safety policy, this can be found in the "Key Information" page under the "Policies" heading.
