Dorset Police will be visiting Yarrells on Tuesday 8 March to discuss Internet Safety

On Tuesday 8th March Dorset Police will be visiting Yarrells to discuss with our Year 1 and above pupils the importance of being safe with technology. They will deliver the programme to all classes from Year 1 to Year 8. We believe that internet safety education is a crucial element of the curriculum and an essential part of young people’s development. The information below is to inform you of the safety messages that your children receive in school so that you can also reinforce them in your home environment.
