Online Safety

At Hullavington CE Primary and Nursery School we recognise the increasing risks in the digital world.  We believe that computing is an important part of a child's education but we also need to ensure that children can use technology in a way that keeps them safe.

In order to ensure all children know how to use computing safely, staff have developed a number of initatives including e-safety workshops led by the local police and the NSPCC and a computing curriculum which has e-safetly running through it.  We run workshops for parents too and encourage parents to get in touch if they need advice or have a concern.
