Internet Safety and Staying Safe Online


We’ve had a few parents asking us recently how to manage online safety at home. 

 

We have put together a hub of resources which you can access at home to assist you in keeping  your child/ren safe online.

 

These resources will tell you all about:

  • Keeping children safe online

  • How to stop your children seeing inappropriate content

  • Online bullying

  • How to keep your children safe from strangers on the internet
