At Moston Lane we embrace new technology to enhance your child’s learning. The school is dedicated to ensure your child is safe when using technology online and e-safety is embedded in the children’s education. We want our parents and children to improve their own understanding of e-safety issues so they can learn to use the internet safely and responsibly.
If any parents/carers are worried about their child's online activity in school they should contact Miss Buckley (Computing co-ordinator) or Miss Adams (Designated Safeguarding Lead).
