Online Safety Information for Parents


This generation of children have never known a world without the internet. The internet and modern technology has many positive contributions to children's lives and can be a fantastic resource for learning and leisure. Parents and carers play a key role in supporting children to learn about how to stay safe online, and they are the first people children turn to if things go wrong. Our school takes online safety seriously and we know it is important to equip our children with the skills they need to be able to use the internet in a positive and safe way. Below are some documents that you may find useful. We have included information about social media sites as even though our children are not old enough to be active on them, they are of course aware of them and may have access to them through older siblings or friends.
