Learning together for a better tomorrow.

E Safety

E-Safety for Parents

At Millington Primary School we believe that purposeful access to ICT across the curriculum motivates and increases engagement and achievement in education. We regard it to be essential in preparing our pupils for ‘a better tomorrow’. ¬†Children can now access the internet via multiple hand-held devices such as iPads, mobile phones and games consoles. As a result they are therefore more vulnerable to the inherent risks associated with internet usage.

Safeguarding our children is always a priority at Millington Primary School. Staff attend on-going training in the area of e-safety and make appropriate changes to reflect new guidance. Also throughout the year the children are taught and reminded how to be a SMART and safe user of the internet.

We invite you to join with us in this journey and help us to educate and support your child in using the Internet, a learning tool which should be embraced. We have added some links below which will guide you to help your child stay safe.
