Welcome! This is where you will find information and links to other sites to help you navigate the internet safely. If you have any questions, or would like to suggest a link or other content for this page, please contact Mrs Havicon.
The internet opens up a whole world of exciting opportunities for children - learning, communicating and entertainment. However, just as it is important to guide children and protect them against risks in the 'real world', so it is that we do so in the 'virtual world' too.
New technology has brought both these opportunities and risks closer to children. Growing up with this technology, children are quick to learn how it works and seem to use it almost instinctively! As part of the Computing curriculum, children are taught to be digitally literate and understand how to be a responsible online citizen.
Nevertheless, as many children have greater access to internet technologies at home (through PCs, laptops, tablets, games, mobiles and so on), we believe it is vital that parents and carers have access to guidance and advice about how to help and protect their children in the online world; for instance, how to use parental controls, which websites and games are suitable for different age-groups, and what to do if you suspect your child is being bullied online.
So, please take the opportunity to look through the links shown here. If you have any questions or concerns, or would like to make suggestions for links or content to share with other parents, please get in touch.
Help us raise awareness of this vital opportunity to keep our children safe online and using digital technology.
This year's slogan for Safer Internet Day is
