Children at Greensted Infant School & Nursery use the Internet on a regular basis as part of their learning. In school, we have regular 'e-safety' activities to remind children of the importance of keeping themselves safe online.

At home, sometimes children can be given unsupervised access to the Internet. This, potentially, allows them to access all kinds of society (both good and bad) and bring them virtually into their homes.

Here are some useful tips and links to help you to keep your children safe online:

We would encourage parents to set up filtering on their home internet. To learn how to do this for the major providers of internet please click the text below.

Setting up internet filtering and parental controls

Keep your computer in a shared area - Talk to your child about what they are doing online and, if possible, set up your computer in a shared area at home so that you can all share in the wonderful sites that are available online.

CEOP also has a great website of information on E-Safety for parents. Please click the link below to visit the page.


The websites below provide excellent clear guidance for children about E-Safety, so please click on the links and have a read: there are separate sites for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.

For the Key Stage 1 site, please click the link below:
