    E-SAFETY: At Clandon School we teach children about how to stay safe when they are online.

    • When  we talk to people in the playground, or on the internet using a computer, tablet or phone we should be polite and friendly.
    • Strangers are people we don't know.  Children learn they shouldn't talk to strangers in real life, or on the internet.
    • Sometimes people are not who they say they are.
    • If children are worried about something, or someone, when they use computers, tablets or phones then they should tell an adult.

    We introduce children to some characters to help them keep safe online. They can find out more, and introduce you to the characters by visiting the ThinkUKnow web page:

    MESSAGE FROM SURREY'S EARLY YEARS AND CHILDCARE SERVICE: From September 2017 some three and four year olds will be eligible for an extra 15 hours of free childcare a week.  Surrey's Early Years and Childcare Service wants to know what parents think about this change so they can do everything they can to support families.  They are asking all parents about what childcare they use now, whether they can access as much as they need and, if they are eligible, how they intend to use the additional 15 free hours.  Please respond to the online questionnaire at www.research.net/r/SurreyChildcare.
