At Westlands First School, we take the safety of our children very seriously. The pace of technology in today’s world is incredibly rapid, therefore E-Safety is of paramount importance. At Westlands, we teach our children about both the benefits and dangers of using modern technology, providing them with a range of strategies for how to keep themselves and others safe when using it.
We have been working with Westacre Middle School to train our Cyber Crew, which is a body of students who represent children throughout the school and have responsibility for raising the profile of E-Safety. Please take a look at our Cyber Crew page on the link to the right hand side to see what we have been up to!
