At South Grove we take e-safety very seriously. E-Safety is embedded within the school’s Computing curriculum and Schemes of Work. It is also contained within the schools PSHCE Curriculum.
E-Safety is also covered throughout the year through focused assemblies. The school takes part in the National Internet Safety Day. Regular workshops are also held for parents annually.
