Staying safe Online

 

What are the issues?

 

The internet is an amazing resource which enables children and young people to connect, communicate and be creative in a number of different ways, on a range of devices.

Trying to keep up to speed with these challenges can be a minefield, as the internet is ever changing and children will find different interests and websites or games that operate in different ways. We are here to help you support your child in staying safe while using technology.

Children are using devices at a younger age so it’s important to consider setting controls on their tech, or on any devices that you are letting them borrow from you. Click on the link below to access parental controls for a number of devices.
