Online Safety

Young people use the internet for a variety of activities including games, research and homework and, of course, for accessing social networking sites. Whilst they are confident with the technology children are not always able to make the right decisions about what they access, who they talk to and what they might post about themselves and others on the internet.

As part of our commitment to safeguarding our children and working with parents we have organised the following online safety information for parents. All the leaflets and resources are taken from the internetmatters.org website and are available to be downloaded and shared with other parents or colleagues.

Age Guide Leaflets

Children use the internet in different ways depending on their age and so internetmatters.org have developed checklists for parents that give you top tips on how to help your children stay safe. Please click the image to download the file.
