Internet safety is always a high priority at Langshott Primary School. Lessons are taught in every year group explaining and demonstrating how to stay safe when using the internet and working with technology.

Recently, we have been holding 'Children and Technology' meetings to share information with families about how to stay safe online.  Below there are some guides and links on how you can support your children at home.
