Internet Safety and online

We place great emphasis on understanding the safe use of the internet. However, as we all recognise, the internet holds pitfalls for all our children that they need to learn how to safely navigate. Here at Poplar Street, we are dedicated to keeping our children as safe as possible by giving them the right skills and knowledge to make safe choices. To that end, we regularly build in to the curriculum refreshers for what they should do in specific circumstances.
