Online Safety (E-safety) is an important part of child protection and safeguarding. Because of the needs of the pupils who attend Five Acre Wood School, teachers work with pupils on an individual basis to develop their understanding of how to keep themselves safe whilst online.
Should you have concerns about your son/daughter and what they are accessing online please do not hesitate to contact Sarah Costain, who is our appointed e-safety leader.
