Staying Safe Online
Being online is an integral part of our children’s lives. Learning through websites and apps, interacting with others at home using social media and gaming can be accessed through mobile phones, computers, laptops and tablets – all of which form a part of children’s online world.
The internet and online technology provides new opportunities for young people’s learning and growth, but it can also expose them to new types of risks. Our aim is to keep all of our children safe online at school and at home by giving them and their parents the awareness and skills to deal with any situation and by providing the most up to date information in this ever changing sector.
On this page you can read through some useful information with your child to help keep them as safe as possible, while still enjoying the experience that being online can bring.
The National Online Safety website provides up-to-date help and support to all parents and children about online safety. You can visit their website here: National Online Safety | Keeping Children Safe Online in Education
