Young people have access to the Internet from many places, home, school, friends’ homes, libraries and in many cases mobile phones. Schools have a number of services to help ensure that curriculum use is safe and appropriate, however, access out of school does not usually have these services and has a range of risks associated with its use.
Schools are ideally placed to help young people learn to become e-safe. We aim to ensure safe internet use by pupils in school, but also, through working with our families, while on-line at home.
These sites will help you to keep your children e-safe:
A downloadable PowerPoint presentation for parents.
CD-ROM (free to order resource) for parents to help raise awareness of how to help
their children stay safe online.
