Children at Three Peaks use the Internet on a regular basis as part of their learning. We believe it is important to not only teach children how to use technology but how to use it safely. We do this by delivering e-safety lessons throughout the year to provide the children with skills and knowledge on how to stay safe online.
At home, many children use the internet for learning and playing games. We encourage parents/carers to supervise their children when they are using it, but we know at times they may be unsupervised. To ensure your child stays safe online at home, we have provided some information and useful links below. Please discuss e-safety with your child and explore the sites with them as they have games and child-friendly videos on staying safe online.
