Online Safety

At Yarburgh Community Preschool we take the safety of children very seriously and this includes computer and Internet safety. We consider online safety a fundamental building block of digital literacy.

We are committed to making sure that the children are able to interact safely and with minimal risk when using technology within the nursery. At Yarburgh we monitor the devices, filter the content and use technology to enhance teaching and learning in a safe way.
