E-Safety

KEEPING CHILDREN SAFE @ SCHOOL
At Dropmore Infant School we recognise the important role that modern technology plays in children's learning and know that the internet can provide a rich and wonderful resource to support and enhance learning.

As part of our school's approach to teaching children how to use modern technology responsibly, we teach children the importance of keeping safe and to understand how to do this when using the internet and electronic devices. We have a comprehensive E-Safety Policy which is available to view below.
