Internet Safety

In the next few sections, you will find links to useful websites relating to Internet Safety. Many of these sites are used in school to highlight safe use of the internet. Although children may be familiar with these sites, we must encourage parents to supervise their children when using the internet at home. The internet is a fantastic learning environment for everyone but the risks and dangers of using it must be highlighted both at school and at home to ensure that children get the best possible learning experiences from it.

Please let us know if you have found any other useful websites relating to Internet Safety and we can add them to our website.

We have added a link below which will take you directly to the Parent's section of the Think You Know website. Here you will find lots of tips and advice on keeping your child safe when online.
