Online Safety

The internet has become part of our everyday lives and we spend more time online than ever before. It is a fantastic resource which enables us to connect and communicate with others in a variety of ways.  However, along with the many advantages, using the internet can also have risks and children need to be taught how to stay safe whilst online.

Technology is constantly changing but even if you’re unfamiliar with the latest technology, talk to you child about their internet use and what they do when they are online.
