Online safety is something we take extremely seriously at Springfield. Children cover the basics every time they use the school computers, as well as having a dedicated online safety lesson every half-term. We also take part in the Safer-Internet day every February which is an international event.
Parents often ask us for advice, as the digital world changes so quickly – so on the pages below we try and signpost towards the most up to date information which is available to help keep your children safe online.

There are many useful websites available for parents to help guide you through e-safety issues. Click on the links below to find a selection which we hope you will find useful. Includes information on how to set up parental controls offered by your internet provider.
Springfield Primary School is committed to promoting the safe and responsible use of the Internet and as such we feel it is our responsibility to raise this particular issue as a concern. Websites such as Facebook offer amazing communication and social connections, however they are created with their audience in mind and it is not possible to control or verify the content.
