At Markland Hill we take Online Safety very seriously. We ensure that it is taught often throughout the children’s Computing and PSHE sessions, as well as raising awareness during local and national E-Safety events.
The Internet is a wonderful place where children can learn, talk, research, be creative and have fun. However, just as in the real world, children's safety needs to be considered. If you or your child is worried or upset about something which has happened on the Internet there is help and advice out there. Click CEOP
In this section, you will find links to useful resources, websites and advice that we use in school to teach the message of how to stay safe online and how to cope when things do not feel quite right.
