E-safety

The teachers at Manorfield think it is very important that both you (and the adults at home) know how to be safe online. We encourage all of you to use the internet sensibly and be open with adults about things that are worrying you.

At our school there are many teachers and adults you can turn to if you are worried about anything online. Remember no matter how small we want to know.

Here are links to some other useful websites where you can learn more about being safe on the Internet.
