At Legh Vale we work hard to ensure that all children can use the internet safely. Home use of ICT by children can lead to better performance at school and an improved standard of work. However, it is important that children follow the simple rules for keeping safe when using the internet. Visit the sites listed below to supplement the work that goes on in school and help keep your child safe.
