Our children are growing up in a world of ever-changing technology.  This brings many benefits, both in and out of school.  However, we are also very aware of the risks that children can be exposed to via the internet.

Protecting your children online

The best way to protect your child online is to be informed and involved.  Talking about your child’s internet use and sharing time online together will allow you to check that your child is using the internet and social media appropriately for their age (many social media sites have an age restriction of 13).  It will also provide opportunities for your child to discuss any activity that has puzzled or upset them.
