Children love using technology and are learning to navigate websites, online games and consoles and touch screen technology like tablets and smartphones from a younger and younger age. Osborne Nursery School has e-safety and internet use policies which all staff, students and volunteers follow.

For advice on using technology with children under 5 years look at the National Literacy parent’s website, Words for Life.

This website for 4-7 year olds is based on the Jessie & Friends animated series, which aims to equip 4-7 year olds with the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to stay safer online. It is intended to be used by 4-7 year olds alongside their parents and carers and there is an accompanying guide for parents and carers.
If you are suspicious about the behaviour of others online, reports can be made to CEOP at: Reporting Suspicious Behaviour Online
