Online Safety

Parents who are finding that their children know far more about the internet and its strange codes and languages than they do, can rest easier, for help is at hand.

Whether on a computer at school, a laptop at home, a games console or mobile phone, children and young people are increasingly accessing the internet whenever they can and wherever they are.

As you would protect your child in the real world, you will want to make sure that they are safe whatever they are doing.  Like learning to cross the road, online skills are for life.  If your child understands the risks and can make sensible and informed choices online, they can get the most from the internet and stay safe whilst doing so.

Keeping Safe Online

  • Talk to your child about their internet use and take an interest.  Your involvement is the best way of keeping them safe.
  • Pass on safety advice.
  • Be Positive! the internet is a fantastic resource for learning, entertainment and communication but just like in the real world you need to take a few precautions.
  • Let your child know they can come to you if something they don’t like happens online.
  • Try not to overreact! This could make them be secretive about their use of the internet and close down communication between you.
  • Remember that all the safety advice here applies to going online with a mobile phone.
  • If you decide to use a filter or monitor information from the internet, talk this over with your child.  Any rules you agree will be more effective.
