E-safety workbook

The Government is asking teachers to focus on ensuring that students understand how to stay safe when using modern day technology.

Chris Coleman has produced an original set of resources to support the teaching and learning of this topic. He suggests that this is run as a six week unit of work.

There are two workbooks, one for the majority of students and the second for lower ability students.

Both workbooks provide clear indications of NC levels and a wide range of tasks and activities for students to work through independently.
