New technologies have become integral to the lives of children in today’s society, both within schools and in their lives outside school. Online safety is addressed within the school curriculum and is part of the wider duty of care.
Parents and carers play a key role in developing safe and responsible online behaviours with their children. Here are some very useful websites and resources which can help:
What do I need to know?
Parental controls offered by your home internet provider
Parents’ guide to technology
Safety tools on social networks and other online services
Supporting young people online (leaflet)
Young people and social networking sites (leaflet)
Bringing up a child in the 21st century (PowerPoint)
Hard copies of the leaflets can be picked up in the School Office.
