e-Safety

Making the internet a safe and healthy place for us to explore is the responsibility of a number of organisations, including supply social media providers, such as Face book, Twitter and Instagram. However, all of us have a responsibility to consider if the photograph, video or information which we have should be shared with the world and for us to consider the impact of our actions, before we cause offense and distress.

To know more about how to keep safe on the internet you may like to use the information on the Greenwich  e -safety website:
