Staying Safe on the Internet

Internet Safety
You may think that your child is too young for you to be thinking about him / her using social networks and the internet, however children who are old enough to type in a few letters on the keyboard can literally access the world. The Internet can be a hugely beneficial resource for children as learners but, equally, we know there have been worrying outcomes when parents have been unaware of their child's contacts on internet sites. That's why it's important to be aware of what your children see and hear on the Internet, who they meet, and what they share about themselves online. Just like any safety issue, it's wise to talk with your child about your concerns, take advantage of resources to protect them, and keep a close eye on their activities. Your child's best online protection is you. By talking to them about potential online dangers and monitoring their computer use, you'll help them to use the Internet safely.
 
If you would like to discuss e-safety / online safety you can make an appointment to speak to Miss Gilsenan, the ICT Lead in school.
