Internet safety is important at Westgarth. The Internet is a fantastic resource and can help children to learn, but it is important to use it properly and safely.
At Westgarth we work continuously with the children to raise awareness of e-safety. Through our curriculum, assemblies and class projects, we strive to make sure that our pupils are responsible digital citizens. Children are taught how to use the internet safely, but to also realise that they will encounter situations which may call upon them to use their knowledge and respond correctly.
If you have any questions or concerns about e-safety then please contact our e-safety officer in school, Mr Calton.
There is a wealth of online resources aimed at educating children on how to use the internet safely and effectively. Below are some of the websites and resources that we would recommend. Please click on the images to access the resource.
