Being online is an integral part of children’s lives. Social media, online games, websites and apps can be accessed through mobile phones, computers, laptops and tablets – all of which form a platform for children’s online world.

 E-safety is a fundamental part of Caldershaw's safeguarding and child protection measures. The government has also set out guidance for schools across the UK, which highlights the importance of safeguarding children online.

Caldershaw Primary School adopts a whole school approach and helps to ensure online safety is regularly talked about and taught to help give the knowledge and skills children need to be safe online.
