Keeping your child safe on-line

Do you ever feel that your children know more about online technologies than you do?  You are not alone.  Mobile phones, tablets and computers are now a key part of everyday life for many children and young people to stay connected. These technologies create huge opportunities for everyone, but can be overwhelming and present challenges to keeping children safe online.

Used correctly, they can be educational, fun and an exciting source of communication, a great way to explore, socialise, learn and play, but used incorrectly, or in the wrong hands they can be both threatening and dangerous.

It is important for parents/carers to understand what students do online and what risks they face. 
There is a wealth of advice and support available online for everyone.  Some of these links are shown below:
