e-safety is an important part of keeping children safe at Hemyock Primary School.
The internet is utilised during school hours and at home therefore it is essential that everybody understands how to use it safely. We cover internet safety during curriculum lessons and through PSHE, Year 6 children also visit Cullompton Community College where they learn about e-safety from our local Police Community Support Officers.
