Whilst the internet is a great resource for children and adults alike, it is important to remember that children still need advice and protection when it comes to managing their lives online.
As part of our ICT curriculum we regularly look at safety and cyber bullying. We provide children with strategies to stay safe whilst reminding them of the rules of using the Internet responsibly.
On this page you will find links to websites, articles and leaflets that will help you, as parents, to keep your child safe and to assist them with using the internet responsibly.
